    Just Purchased A New Motorcycle!!!

    Damn...im smiling from ear to ear since this afternoon!! I just purchased the bike that I've always wanted since getting my motorcycle license four / five years ago. My instructor from the msf course had a Honda ST1100 and knew that was the bike for me.
    Few weeks ago I spotted a 2003 Honda ST1300 for sale and knew it was mine! Now it is!!!
    Too dark to take any photo's...but I'll definitely have some in the next few days.

    Here's a photo from a web site:



    You would not beleave the difference from my Shadow to this one! Night and day! Handles SO much better, tons of power, excellent brakes...just a much better bike.

    nice bike! looks really comfy.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    Thanks Dan! Yeah, she's fast! Before you know it, your 20-30mph over the speed limit, lol. Fast, smooth, no such vibrations from the engine. A big change from a V-twin.

    SWEET!!!

    Dude, that is a sweet looking bike. I want to buy one sometime.

    If you ever have a long day/weekend where you need a trip, head East! I'll buy you lunch/dinner if you make it this way.

    (BTW... I'm still planning to fly to Urbana one of these days. I get checked out in the Piper Archer tomorrow.)

    Thanks B!

    Yeah, I definitely want to plan a fall trip on the bike. Dunno which direction yet, lol.

    Heck yeah, would be really cool if you could fly over sometime!
