    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. :deal

    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.

    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...:deal

    Honda generally supports OEM parts for 10 years after models are phased out. I'd say 1100 parts are going to get harder to find...it's been 12 years since the 1100 was put out to pasture.

    ^ This is a myth. OEMs stock parts for discontinued models a lot longer then 10 years. :deal

    Especially for models that sold in the small numbers STs did.

    Possibly the cleanest it will ever be.

    Bought it due to the demise of the previous slower blue 1300 that I decided to total by hitting the rear of a car.

    Parts are a great money maker no? Seems like good business to keep making them on popular bikes especially when they can charge such an ungodly amount for them.

    well, they don't have a diaphragm for my Rebel 450.

    And Honda imported that model for two years. 1986 and 1987.

    ^ They sold the last one they had two years ago. :lol3

    Bought an '88 NX125 in 2007, it needed a tail light lens to pass inspection. They still had one. They also still had front and rear sprockets for it.
