    Looks great. Right place too to get loaded up, not too far back. How did you attach it? Two matching side aluminum cases and you will be a GS clone.:D

    My back seat has a fold down back rest. I loop one rachet strap under it and the the other through the hand grips.
    I am going to drill holes through the bottom and bolt it into two of the hold down bolts.

    I bought it.
    This thing is weird. But its sooooo smooth.
    Are they normally hard to drop into corners or are the tires that square that it feels like a car tire is on the bike?

    Mine felt that way too at first. A new tire fixed it right up.

    +1 on that smooth speeding bit. 80mph is the sweet spot.


    What tires you have on that 15K puppy?

    This is my ST 1300 A Pan European (ABS, CBS, electric windshield). My extras: highway pegs, GPS holder, two 12V sockets, fog lights, heated grips and top-case rack

    Not my ST1300 (I rode the Super Tenere that weekend) but that of one of my st-owner buddies at OzarkSTOC in Theodosia, MO.

    I enjoyed my ST1300 a lot, great mile muncher and one of the best distance bikes I've owned.
    As I look for another bike that covers the same bases, but can be found at a price I can pay cash for out of pocket - I've been looking at ST1100's.

    There are some very good deals out there (aren't there always before you're ready to buy? :bluduh), look forward to a summer fly 'n ride.

    In late May/early June when I am ready to buy, I'll be looking for low mile examples (in case anyone's thinking of selling :D ).
    Pretty much the only thing I'll want for sure, is a 40A alternator, so a '96 or later or a retro-fitted earlier bike.

    Good call on the 40A alternator. I would also suggest holding out for an ABS model as they have larger diameter front forks and stronger front brakes in addition to the ABS feature.
