I set the first one up at our dealer, Niehaus Cycle Sales, Litchfield, IL today. I'll share some assembly pics if you are interested. Actually, I'll share a few pics, even if you aren't interested.

This is how it arrives.

Since I can't figure out how to insert more than one pic per reply, I will do just that. Here is it with the wrappings off.

What I'm wondering is what happens when you don't get all the gas in the tank with that underseat filler. What do you "douse" with gasoline when that happens?
It looks like it is recessed with a surrounding wall to contain any spilled gas.

The battery is in front of the storage comaprtment. It will have a plastic cover with the tool kit installed in front of it when it is hooked up.

No ABS Mitch. I wanted it but Honda bundles it with the DCT transmission and I did not want that.

Sell the ST1300? Are you kidding? I have 112,000 miles on it now and I still love riding that bike!

These windscreen inserts are installed for the screen. They can be turned end to end to raise or lower the screen slightly. This is showing them in the lower position. I installed them in the higher position.

I'm not sure of other bikes, but on all Hondas and Yamahas when you are installing bars and controls, there are always small index marks to show you the position that the manufacturer recommends. Here you can see a small dimple mark in the bar that lines up with the split in the brake master cylinder clamp. The marks will always line up with the split in the mounting clamp such as this.

Honda sells non-ABS bikes? In 2013? They shouldn't be allowed to. ABS should be mandatory. The lack of same would not prevent me from buying an older bike. But a new one? Honda, get with the programme!

Here is a shot with the crate disassembled, but the bike still supported on the base. it is easiest to do much of the assembly this way, as this bike does not come with a center stand. One is optional thru Honda, though.

We raise the front of the bike using soft ties and a fork lift and then slide the crate base out from under it.

After cleaning the brake discs, checking air, oil, coolant, etc the instructions say to wash the engine and exhaust system down to remove any anti rust compound before starting the engine. I figure, why not just wash the whole thing down while you're at it.
