Welcome to the forum family Taylor. What a great deal! The CTX is so easy to rack up the miles on if you like to ride. Its a riders bike!I have a pretty neat story about how I got my CTX. I went to a dealer in Durham NC to look at a used white CTX700 manual trans. When I got there they said they had just sold it to someone else, but that they had also just got a return from a previous customer. A guy bought this red one I have now for his wife so they could share a hobby. She was so scared of it that she never rode it. I bought it as a used bike with only 10 miles on it! price was $5,400 before tax and fees. But I got a brand new bike with the saddle bags and heated grips. So im very happy that this one worked out. Just hit 700 miles after a trip to the beach so im going to go ahead and take care of changing the oil and transmission filter and really start racking up miles.
It really is an astonishingly beautiful machine. Only 23 mods ive done is the 24 in cee baileys wind screen and a throttle rocker for ease of use on the highway. Also have a RAM phone mount but i dont really call that a mod. Kuryakyn floor boards to come soon!
