Default St owner wannabe

Hello
I have ridden many years on many types of bikes. I ride 90% by myself and want to buy something comfortable and fun to ride that can be ridden 2 up occasionally. I don't get to ride too much so don't want to invest too much in a bike.
I have had a BMW 1200 RT, 1200GS and a Ducati ST4 that was fun to ride but not too comfortable. The BMW's spoiled me for ABS.
I thought I would start getting up to speed and keep an eye out for a good deal on a 04+ ST1300ABS.
I do appreciate all the information and feedback.
Ward

No problems on any year models.
If you like the BMW ABS you will love the ST's.
Heat is owner dependent and with proper riding gear a non-issue.
The color you want is the only real difference.

Welcome to the forum.
Pick your favourite colour by year with ABS and go ride.
These bikes are indestructible, it will out wear you before you out wear it.
