Sounds like a nice addition. Did the performance or mileage change in any way?

Zero perceptible change in performance or mileage. Fairly certain the rear tire life expectancy is going down. :)

The burble on trailing throttle is addictive.

Awesome, too bad about the tire wear issue

Hey how come the ST13 is not on you bike list in your signature line?

My ST.

Messing with people at the Hotel at Barber Motorsports! It's hammercoated black with Racetech front springs, ABS/ TC/PAIR/CA delete(about 40 lbs including charcoal can...), BT023 tires, I'm 6-4 so no windscreen at all works great.

That sure looks sad lying down like that . Like the rear rack you have on it.

Lay an ST1100 down; you've got $30 worth of plastic to replace. Lay any other bike down and it's a write-off .

(yeah, I know if you lay down at speed you'll probably be replacing a mirror and a blinker housing, but still increadibly cheap)

My Michelin Road Pilot 3's shipped today! I had to go up one size in the width to compensate going from 70 series to 60 series. I'm hoping it will be a 1/2 inch shorter in the rear.

Here is another one to keep things going.

The bike looks like it is standing on its own.




Don't let the winter stop you from riding (on sunny clear road days that is).

Where was this picture taken? Looks a lot like a spot North of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, on the way to the Canadian border. Think I've got a pic of my ST there...

And a pic just to keep things goin... Probably already posted it but from last summers trip- "Lake" Roosevlet in Washington.

Thumb Never new there was a thread

I sold mine this fall, was an 06, although I loved it, after I bought the GSA, I just did not ride it much anymore. Here is a pick and the ride report in my signature block is 3.5 months in Europe we did in 2008

You got it. It is just a few miles north of the Canadian border. Idaho has some of the best roads I've ever ridden.


I like the street fighter look of your ST1100. There must be a good story there.
