I could not imagine a riding season. It gets stinking hot here, sometimes it gets cold but I can always ride.

We keep getting the cold fronts from the north. Barely got to 68°. So, I have been riding the CTX. Still love the bike. Like a mini Goldwing. Not as fast as the Val but much warmer.
Another cool cycle from Honda that didn't sell, maybe if they would of not detuned the motor it would of sold better.

That's what killed it. But, it still has good power, burns 87, and I have had 22 people compliment the look. Still waiting for my first on the Val.

I had a ST1300 it was a fast bike. I'm sure it still has good power but a lot of people and articles would complain about the power it loss.

I sat on a CTX and was thoroughly unimpressed. It felt like a large scooter. And I really didn't like the fact that the mirrors where hidden behind my hands...I couldn't see anything out of them from a normal seated position. I really wanted to like the bike because it was a good price and checked almost all the boxes for a good commuter. Perhaps if I had actually ridden it I would have changed my mind.....

You have to raise the bars to the sweet spot. Took me a while to get use to Val mirrors.
