Hello everyone, I am new to this site but not new to riding - I have a 2007 Honda ST1300 (I purchased new back in 2008)and have put all 154,xxx miles on the odometer. I have traveled many places all over the country to get that many miles with many smiles.

At a the tender age of 14 my mother let me have a (used) street Yamaha 350 - 2 cycle. Man at that age the bike flew.. Had to add 2 cycle oil to a separate tank and the bike mixed it as it was consuming fuel. Then later ( at 16) my dad helped me purchase a 1980 Yamaha 400 special -- Brand new-- I had a job and had to pay for it but he helped me get it, and he took care of the insurance for me.  I put many miles on it until I got married --- 

My other bikes have been New-Honda V-45 magna,  Used-Honda VLX 600 and now my ST1300. 

I  retired from Honda of America about a year ago--- after 34 years of service so now I can take riding seriously  LOL...

There are quite a few people on here that ride sporty touring bikes that track up the miles.  The ST1300s are great bikes.

Welcome. Congrats on retirement. What did you do at Honda? 

Like your prents, I was pro-moto. I put my boy on a dirtbike at age 5 and he rode them as a teenager. I bought him a Ninja250 a few years ago and it didn't stick with him. Had planned on upgrading him to something a little more zoomy but he decided streetbikes arent his bag. I'm ok with that, if I may be honest.

HI there , well I started out on the assembly line back  in May of 1986, and ended in quality control in June of 2020.
