I wasn't happy with this Honda top box above and have replaced it with a Givi E45 mono-key model which is much more practical, having a better release mechanism and can hold two full face helmets.

PROS & CONS OF THE ST1100
You can read full details of the new ST1300
Having seen then new ST1300 at the NEC motorcycle show it confirms my opinion that it is a better bike than the current model, which is now looking dated. Honda must regret that they didn't replace it two years ago. Less weight, fuel injected 1300 engine, adjustable seat , stainless steel silencer/exhaust and a shorter wheelbase are a wining combination. It was noticeable how the panniers fit more smugly into the rear wheel arch creating a slim rear end. Couldn't see an oil filler cap? Not that it would be needed often. I know some owners worry about how vulnerable their parked current bikes are with an easily accessible oil filler cap to the mischievous.

Picture taken on the Icefields Parkway, Canadian Rockies. I had to put up with a hire car on this route. These two riders had the best means of transport and made me envious. Nice biking road.
