I've thought about the ST1300 from time to time. I keep hearing stories about high speed instability but its unclear to me if this is really a significant issue, a problem with bike setup or what. Could any of you owners comment on your experiences with it?

I had a '93 ST1100 ABS. Excellent bike, loved riding it. Like a dumbass I sold it when I thought I needed the bucks. They are few and far between here but I would love to get another.

Have an 06ABS model and no wobble or heat here.At 140mph it is stable enough that I can read my fuel average (18.2).No topbox,42psi front and rear,rear suspension firm and my weight is 150lbs.

OK, you want bugs?

The Black 1991 ST is Keith Rosendahl’s (ownst1100) and my Red 1997 ST, On the way to Panamint Springs Death Valley.

Oil changes do require removal of the lower unpainted fairing, though. Adding oil (something I never did between changes for 140,000 miles) couldn't be easier.

Wheels come off relatively easily for tire changes and Honda provided a drain for the final drive from the get-go (can you hear me BMW???). Brake pads are easy enough to change.

Even the required timing belt change at 90,000 wasn't too bad. Fortunately, it just doesn't need much work.
Damn,

I wish I could figure out how to post pics

I love my 02 ST with 36000 miles on it. Absolutely, positively a wonderful bike. I will keep it until either it, or I is worn out (it will probably outlast me) Besides, I can't afford a new one!
