A huge thank you to TIP

A couple of days ago I started a thread on this forum, wondering if the CTX 700T is the right bike for me (here in Canada they donít come with the DCT.
Anyway, I met with TIP this morning for a coffee and we then talked for over 2 hours. TIP was kind enough to allow me to take his CTX for a short ride (about 10 miles). While Iím still not sure if itís the bike for me, I was very impressed with the power from a stop up to 75 mph. The brakes are great and doing a u-turn on a 2 lane road was super easy.
Overall a very nice bike. Certainly a lot less vibration than the V-twin.
Again, thanks to TIP for a great conversation and for letting me try his bike.

Decisions, Decisions.............who knows.

Thanks for the kind words. I believe that is what the forum is all about. Helping each other. When I started riding I got a lot of needed advise from all you guys and gals. What goes around comes around. Good luck with your decision Greg. When he drove in on a Honda, you just knew he had to be a good guy.
