I purchased this beautiful sport touring machine new from Honda dealer in April 2009. It has never been dropped and has been well maintained and garage kept. Bridgestone BT023 tires installed May 2011 and are in excellent condition with approximately 3,000 miles on them. I had the break in service performed by dealer. All other scheduled maintenance performed at suggested intervals (or more frequent) by myself. I am not a mechanic, but the ST is actually simple to perform routine maintenance. Service manual included .The Honda ST1300 is a fine sport touring motorcycle and is fun to ride ALL day. I also use it as a commuter and it gets great gas mileage. It runs extremely smooth and quiet with plenty of power at your disposal. It truly has been a great trouble free moto.
