In December 2006 I took ownership of a Honda ST1100. The bike was first registered in April 2001 and had covered just over 12000 miles. Some extras fitted included a taller screen, a Givi top box and a colour matched Bagalux tank cover.

Having put about 1200 miles on the bike, the MOT became due at the end of March. This was to be expensive as I had to replace the exhaust down-pipes due to the mild steel collector box rotting. I also took the opportunity to fit new disc pads all round and change the oil & filter.

The bike is well sorted and great for long distances. In September 2007 we took the bike from Swansea to the Ace cafe London for a day out. We covered 390 miles at high motorway speeds!
