I had an 85 BMW K100LT that I liked the seating position but its worse vibration/buzz was right around 55-60mph.Extremely smooth at 70,but not too practical around town.The first summer,I thought it had a coolant leak on the left side as my left pant leg was wet after a days ride.Turned out it was sweat from all the heat of the cylinder head being on that side.(The engine is an in line 4 laid on its side and parallel with the frame.)
I now have an 95 ST1100 with helibars,Corbin seat with Butt Buffer.Very smooth engine,good torque,about as comfortable as the BMW.(I need to sit up right due to back problems.)My only gripe is its weight.Not felt at speeds,but when pushing the bike out of the garage.
The ST1300 looks good to me,but still heavy.I understand it will still be awhile before they arrive at the dealers due to some problems.All the writeups say it is more touring than sport vs the FJR1300 .Has anyone received this bike and got some time on it?
