    I work in Mt Airy which is even closer.
    Will the USB port drain the battery if it stays on all the time? I would think the circuit would be open until something was plugged into it.
    Hard bags are so expensive, I think I'll grab some soft ones for the time being.

    Very cool! I'm right on the Carroll/Frederick co border in keymar, MD. I'd like to put some side bags on mine. I have a SHAD40 top box from the previous owner. I'm also looking to add USB for charging. So far I am happy without the windscreen- but I'm younger and dumber than you

    Hi, Jim!

    I just picked up a '14 CTX700N and also live in Maryland. Your Bike looks great! What part of the state do you call home?

    Loving the pics of your bike! I'm looking at getting a faired model, but you're pretty much where I want to land. Thanks for sharing all the documentation.

    Hi Lobo,

    This is the link to the sound test video on the CTX700 automatic!

    Hi Lobo,

    I have the six speed manual, not the automatic. The only real noticeable gear noise I get is when I initially shift into first gear when I start off, after that it is smooth sailing. I just watched a video of a guy that is driving your model and his video was suppose to be a sound test. If I bookmarked it I'll shoot you the link and you can hear his shifting!

    Jim it has taken me awhile but I purchased a 2015 ctx700dct from Crofton Honda. It had a little over 700 miles on it. My question is it normal to hear the Klunk and feel the gears shift. Also when I'm in 6th gear and give it gas it feels like I'm being pulled back a little.
    Now I've been driving a Vespa gts300 with CVT transmission so I realize that things will feel different.

    Any thoughts,
    Bob

    Hi Mike,

    I seldom used the stand after I installed the center stand. With the center stand and the right balance you can get the front wheel off the ground or the rear wheel. I clean my chain this way!

    Jimmy, I see you have a bike holder for the back wheel; in this image. I don't know what they are called. I have one but when I put it under the bike it hits the muffler. what's the ticket to get this under the bike so I can work on it. I can barely get it under without hitting the muffler and I've seen it just about come off when I was working on the bike. Perhaps I can post a picture of my problem when I get home tonight.

    Thank you, Mike

    Hi Jim: My name is Bernie Younger (new member) and just want to get your opinion on the highway capabilities of the CTX 700. I'm a senior rider (69) and have been riding a Harley Ultra for the past ten years. I really like the ride of the Harley but the weight and bulk is getting to be a bit much. Will be downsizing in the future. I take one or two week long trips each year and much of it is on the slab. Can the CTX 700 run fairly smooth at say 70-75mph? I try to keep highway speed at 70-75 max and usually run at 65. Thanks for any input. Bernie.
