      I’m in the same boat Madjak … love my CBR and have lots of fun ripping it up around town and on the highway, but I want something more touring/cruiser for days when I just want to get there in comfort and putter along.  Although, your ST isn’t a putter along kinda bike, it’s the comfortable way to rip it up and haul arse.  Had it out to the mountains yet?

      It’s a good bike to cruise around outside the city. It performs its best sitting around 110 Km/h…..They are amazing going through the twisty mountain roads.

        May be expensive but worth it.

        A Honda dealership near me has a 2012 st1300 for $16k I’m thinking that if it’s still there at the end of the summer they will lower the price a little more and with a trade in of my 03 I could get it for a reasonable price…we will have to wait and see

          The ST is lots of fun, especially on those once in a while occasions where you open her up.
          Never ridden an MT-01 so I can’t say.

          Now that my bike is fixed I have it up with me in Ft. mac,  ;D

            I’m really glad I bought the Honda, it’s a great bike!

            Later.

            That really are. Yet they still get poor reviews just because they don’t have all the electronic doo-dads that the Beemers have.

            Also, you should check out st-owners.com there is a lot of helpful tips and people on that forum that cater specifically to sport touring bikes, mostly the ST1300 though.

              Turns out it’s only $280. I’m done school now but still need to find a permanent job.
              Mine has 105,000 kms on it and only the rear wheel bearings have gone, everything else is still good. I’m sure your bike will be fine

              That’s good that things are working out for you now after everything.

                Still going to end up being $500 or so. Better than the couple grand that I’d have to pay if i rode it to ft mac and the whole rear end seized up.

                          Congrats on getting your bike ready, I think that the cops will impound your bike if they catch you. Plus, both you and your friend could receive a ticket for it.

                            I won’t be getting new tires on my bike until the 30th, so I’m out…plus I’m in ft mac.
                            FYI madjak, when you need new tires for your st you should really think about getting pilot road 4 GTs

                                  The road test is around 150 so knowledge should be less than 75, i think it’s 50. Not too sure, just call a registry and they will tell you
