    I now have a 2007 Honda ST1300 with ABS brakes parked next to the twins!

    Its only got 5K miles and is in showroom condition!

    The tires still have the little nubs on them.

    The guy purchased it new in 2009 as a left over model.

    The only thing I could find wrong with it was a damaged grommet

    on one of the side covers! .83 cents for a new one!

    Its got an electric windshield too boot!

    The first thing I noticed about it on the ride home last night was

    it didn't have the violent thrust and on/off throttle that my GL1800 had.

    It was very smoooooth and deceptive instead.

    It seems really heavy sitting on it in the garage, but as soon as you

    start to move it becomes light as a feather and very nimble.

    When I merged onto the freeway and twisted the throttle, I started

    to think what have I done? This this is no where near as fast as my wing

    was? Then I looked down and realized I was gliding along in go directly to

    jail speeds!

    Its really different. You feel like your doing 55mph when in fact

    your rolling along at almost 100mph.

    I'm gonna have to be very carefull and watch my speed on this puppy.

    Now the new owner service begins.....

    The ST is actually faster than the GW, at least mine is.
