This is my 2015 CTX700 DCT which I bought new in 2015. Been riding for 60 years. Started on a Honda Trail 90 in 1960 at age 15. Had the first Honda CB750 imported to Oregon in 1969. Had 6 Harley Davidsons: Road King, Fat Boy, Heritage Softail, Sportster 1200, Nightrod Special 1250, Lowrider 104. Went back to Honda in 2015.

60,000 miles so far. Only trouble was DCT at 45,000 miles. Sensor Assembly (transmission gear sensor) replaced and replaced ratio control motor.

Have added windshield, engine guards, side bags, Corbin seat and Honda luggage rack. Drive it every day. Take a 2-5 day camping trip every month. Am 76 years old.

Thanks. I forgot to mention I have also added heated grips and Barkbuster handguards. Best bike I've ever had. I actually got 101 miles per gallon on one tank of gas - slow & steady on a new, level road.

Like your quote. How about this one from Mark Twain: "It's not what you don't know you should worry about. It's what you think you know but you're wrong about that will get you." Cheers.

I notice you have Shad SH23 side cases. Shad shows those as being incompatible with the CTX

I see you have the Shad SH23 side boxes installed. I like the look; but Shad says the SH23 is not compatible with the CTX700. Did you have any issues installing them?

I see some very innovative mods to your bike, Sir. I especially like your extension to the brake pedal.:D

My mechanic can do anything. He has the local Moto Guzzi dealership and has been servicing this bike for 6 years. I don't know if he had trouble but they look fine and are very solid. I really like top opening bags and these have been great. I also have the Shad 33 top box but took it off because I'm getting too old to raise my leg that high. There are two points of attachment. Don't know if you can see in these pictures.
