I really wanted (want) a 919 but an ST has been on my list for a while, couldn't pass this one up.

My youngest brother just picked up an '04 with 53K on it. It isn't even broken in yet! Paid $4K. Immaculate bike!

He loves it.

Here's my ST1300 in front of the GS I owned for a year and a half before selling it to my friend. No regrets on the change, at worst I traded one set of quirks for another. The ST is a blast to ride, and despite its weight, it's a sure-footed bike even in gravel or poor roads. Now, when you're pushing it around...

If i were you i`d sell the other 2 & keep the wing , but then the KLR is cool also. Remember if no contract deals can be broken. My wife always ask me when i`m going to sell my 2 wings & older BMW & i tell her SOMEDAY WHEN I`M DEAD.

Both of my younger brothers ride ST 1300's. They love them for long distance riding. Very reliable, all weather touring bikes that can hustle around corners.

The ST 1300 is the best sport touring bike out there, IMHO.

You may have a point there.I know I'm going to regret selling this wing.It's been a great bike.May focus on moving the KLR and CB750 firstas I do need room.

I'm rapidly coming around to that option as well. 'Not that fastest, not the most cutting edge but supremely comfortable for a sport touring mount, will do 250 between fill-ups, and just never seems to break.. I'll be leaving on a long trip in a few weeks (10,000 mile plus). Since my bike only has about 4k on it now I thought I'd better check to see what preventive service the local shop would recommend. Per the service manager: "check the fuilds and tires as you go but otherwise you should be fine". Apparently they have been servicing one with over 200,000 miles on it that has called for nothing more than routeen repairs. Character is great when you are 150 miles from home. When that's more like 1,500 or 3,000 tho
words like "stone cold reliable" and "sustained comfort" start to become more relevant. And if you can get that on a bike that's still plenty of fun when you twist the go stick, you are approaching in my opinion the ideal long distance mount. A Goldwing may be a better choice if you are planning to go to the other coast 2-up. If you are going solo tho, this would be the one.

Found a smaller windscreen... Still a little goofy looking but it'll do for now. my big windshield will fit on over this one, so when I plan on doing a longer ride or want more wind protection I can just pop the big one back on. Not real impressed with the mounting system for the little windshield, will be making some brackets to move the screen back and tipped back just a bit more.
