Post by: james on October 01, 2010, 06:00:00 pm
well after many restless nights pondering how my new concours 14 would look near my zg1000 i finaly rode one back at the end of august .. just not the bike for me did not feel comfy so i looked elsewhere then a 2003 st1300 cought my eye hmmm was this the bike for me ..... hell yeah !!!!  so i flew to virginia labor day weekend paid the man for her and rode her home ..seat was a little stiff but man could she handle. heat was also an issue more in traffic then on freeways .. i left va at 2pm friday got home to methuen at 11 am sat  man my a** was sore ..now for the last week iv'e been chasing antifreeze leaks what a pain in the a** i found most of my clamps loose must have been built on friday ..finished wed night so far so good .so if you have an st1300 that leaks let me know im a pro at it now   so far im happy with her   ...

Did you consider getting another C-10, maybe newer with less miles, instead?  Serious question, not pullin' your leg.  Thx.

How does it compare with the ZG1000? 

Frankly, I'm afraid to ride one because I may want it!

I like the look of the ST, but cannot stand that Singer sewing machine sound they make.  Course I can't stand much other than a 4 cylinder inline, so what else is new?  Congrats on the new ride, may it bring you great pleasure.
