Since 1991, Honda's ST has been almost legendary among heavyweight
sport-touring motorcycles. The 2003 ST1300 ABS, with its potent
longitudinally mounted V-4, electronically adjustable windshield and Anti-lock
Brakes, continues that legacy. This is a great open-road bike that devours
big miles in comfort yet handles far better than any motorcycle this large has a
right to. At 648 lbs, it fulfilled Gizmo's wish to be riding something a
bit smaller than his former bike, a BMW K1200LT. Fuel range with the huge
7.7 gallon tank is outstanding.
