I will have to say, that the demo ride was unequivically the most boring ride I have ever been on. The wobbly, halting 15 min ride reached speeds in excess (just) of 43 kph for the bulk of the tour of Coquitlams bumpier alleyways, and ended in a breath taking 67 kph for 2 kilometers along hwy 7 back to the dealership. I managed to shift up from 2nd gear during the return trip, into 3rd. I have no idea if I should like the ST1300 I was riding. . . very disappointing.
If my ride could be taken as status quo for Honda's demo days, save your time and arrange a demo with a dealer for a real test ride.
Anyone have fun on their demo's? I was hoping they'd 86 the youngster guiding the tours.
