Well folks, this 77 year old is not ready to give up the ride just yet. Currently riding a 2009 Shadow Aero 750 and average 6500 miles a riding season which around here is seven months. Looking to pick up a CTX700n sometime around April-May. Looking to test the automatic version to see if I might be interested. Just wish Honda would wake up to the fact that a center stand would make chain maintenance a snap and worth an additional accessory charge for those of us who recognize this little detail.
