For sale is my extremely well maintained 2003 Honda ST1300 ABS sport-touring motorcycle. YES this is an ABS model!!! The color of the bike is Honda Tower Silver Metallic OEM paint (2003 model official color). The bike has 25, xxx majority highway miles on the ODO. This bike is ridden only in good weather, washed and covered after every ride and waxed every 3 months.
This is one of the most smoothest (1300 cc V4 engine), comfortable, quiet, reliable bike I have personally ridden and owned. This bike has superior wind protection and with a Clearview (medium) after market electric windshield with vent, lower it on a hot day or raise it on a cool day. Electric windshields-the best feature to have on a bike!
Bike is stable at all speeds. Low speed manuevers-excellent, highway travel-got to keep an eye on that speedometer as speed rises real quick without any effort whatsoever. This bike will pull pass an 18 wheeler at highway speeds on 5th gear and feels very steady while doing it.
Being a sport-touring/ long distance rider enthusiast this bike has a huge amount of storage space to haul your stuff and a passengers' stuff in its 2 detachable saddle bags, rear trunk (upgrade) and 2 cavarneous fairing pockets! plus a passenger on the rear seat.
In addition to what was mentioned above this bike gets me 50-56 MPG (MPG's is dependent on rider throttle input) at highway speeds easy and with a 7.7 gallon tank U can cover great distances before the next fill up. With todays gas prices it just makes sense to own this bike.
This bike has new brake pads installed, shaft drive oil flushed and replaced, engine oil + filter drained and replaced, radiator coolant flushed and replaced, clutch fluid flushed and replaced, all brake resorvoirs flushed and replaced, air filter replaced, new tires on front and rear, valve clearance check done with no adjustments needed and all maintenance that either I have done or a certified Honda mechanic have done to the bike since I purchased it.
In addition to the above maintenance that was done to the bike this bike has been upgraded to my exacting touring needs which are valued +/- $2400.

Why am I selling it?
My intention when I first purchased this bike was to ride long distance and tour other states on the weekend. Unfortunately pending projects and my work schedule has taken up a lot of my time hence the sale of my well cared for sport-tourer.
With only 25,XXX miles and all the included upgrades, this particular bike is at least "Average Retail" condition. Much better in my opinion. You will be hard pressed to find a bike this well maintained with the upgrades at a dealer at this price. Bike is located in the Birmingham area. I have clear title on hand with no lein holds.
Send me an email or PM with your questions or concerns and I will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your interest.
