I've been riding 45 years with 14 bikes under my belt so when I spotted the 700 CTX with a fairing I was interested. I took a manual and an automatic CTX out for a spin. Being 6'3" my knees don't clear the fairing. The rear brake is useless, it's a chain drive, the seat looks cool but is thin and like a board and $9,500 for a useless fairing with no storage is just plain crazy. Add saddlebags a taller windshield (not tall enough) a rack and cheesey backrest for another $2 grand , wahhhht.
