Well I am slowly setting the ST1100 up for some longer trips, the following add ons are a must, 2 x 12v outlets in the glove box, new seat, handlebar risers, and a windscreen deflector.

now comes to the luggage carrying, it has the side panniers, and genuine top box.

I have since bought a Besteem top box little more space


and then stumbled across this "LITTLE" sucker so i thought i would buy it and see what its like, whilst more so a food carrier lol 90ltrs So i thought it would be of some advantage, the photos are just a mock up sit on, I will fabricate a base plate to bolt straight onto the besteem plate, and then Im in the process of making a custom backrest for each box, i will make the backrest with arms so it snugs in ma gal.




have a nice day

Nice idea but not for me... something that big will act like a sail and will have too much drag on it... tank range will suffer and you'll buffet in the crosswinds not as stable a feeling at all... Mind you I feel that way with my Givi e46 topbox ...I cant imagine what you're attempting...good luck with it...pls let us know how it works for you...

I'm thinking that takes the sport right out of sport-touring.

Saw one this weekend at the Slimy Crud Run in WI. They actually look pretty nice in person.

I have had the wants for an ST forever. I should just buy one and get it over with. I can't decide whether to find a clean 1100 or just move on to the 1300. I like them both. Question,are parts getting hard to find for the 1100? That may make my decision a little easier if they are.

One of the great thing about these bikes is that you don't need much for them besides tires, oil and filters.

OEM parts for the 1100 are readily available. You can also find a lot of good used parts, except plastic bits for them, on ebay.

Parts are easily available for the 1100...both bikes have their merits..personally i like the styling of the 1100s' over the 1300s...I prefer analog gauges that dont wash out in sunlight...and the 1100 feels a bit more stable on the hwys...1300's have fuel injection and a adjustable windscreen... amd a height adjustable seat...on the 1100 the ignition key locks the bags too...you can leave them unlocked but latched...the 1300 needs a separate key and they are locked once the key is removed...minor shit to be sure...either way these are an excellent Sport-Touring platform...hard to go wrong.

My 1100 during better times, loaded to get me and the mrs to the MOA rally with full camp gear.


The demise, me in the black, 7 or so broken ribs. Didn't know it yet still thinking I could ride her out



The result, better bike , I think so

Thanks for the info. Good to be able to keep an 1100 on the want list. I know about Honda reliability. Had a '91 Wing that was bullet proof for 120,000 miles. Have a '97 Valkyrie with 40,000 now. No problems. I was thinking more about plastic. Thanks again. If/when I get an ST I'll post it in this thread.

Plastic body work panels are available...but going through Honda is costly...depends upon who is paying for it...
