    1st review

    This is an excellent motorcycle! It is very fast and easy to ride. The police edition comes with a 1" handlebar riser that makes the riding position very comfortable. I am considering buying one of these bikes for my personal ride as well. It is fun to ride. All the comforts of a cruiser, with the benefits of a sport bike.

    We are testing a new ST1300P built for us by Blue Ridge Power Sports in Harrisonburg, Va. It sure is fun to ride and the violators don't know what hit them. We added custom saddle bag guards to keep it looking nice. I'll let you know more in July after we get some more time on the bike.

    My department owns 6 of these bike, the police package, and we love them. We test drove the BMW's and didn't like the pick up or the maintaince issues. We have had our bikes for about 4 yrs and absolutely love them.We put custom "crash" bars and lots of lights. If you want a picture of my bike just let me know.

    When I recertified in October, there was an officer there on a new ST1300P. It doesn't appear to be as comfortable for 8-10 hours as my Electra Glide but the damn thing is awesome in every other way! Runs, handles, and stops well. I think his bike's name might have been "Kit!" LOL

    Can you tell me if the linked brakes are activated ie if you tap the rear brake will the front brake activate. We are getting some ST1300's for our fleet and I do not like the idea of linked brakes for slow course work.

    As a (former) Uk civilian Motorcycle courier, now in the US, be careful with this one lads........quite a few Police forces in the UK have had to withdraw tis Bike ( and the Pan European, European versions ST1100) as it can get VERY unstable approaching 130........when loaded with extra Police gear!!!!

    I had the opportunity to take this for a test drive about 6 months ago . . . .Let me tell you, I was impressed. It was a full-dress Police bike from Honda and they put all the little things on it that just make a Motor Cops day. . . . .

    If you ever can, call Honda and see where the bike is and let your Department know that they will loan it to the Department for between 1-5 days at no charge, except for the gas. You will like this fun bike to ride as a duty bike.

    I got the opportunity to test ride this bike a couple of months ago. I was a very good riding bike, smooth and responsive. The only downside to it is that it does not come with ANY public safety equipment. You have to add lights, siren, etc ... aftermarket. Our dept. prefers a turnkey approach when buying motors.

    This is a nice bike. Went to a motorcycle show and took a gander. Very nice. Wish I was able to test it. But Honda does make quality vehicles and motorcycles.

    I've been assigned a Police Harley Davidson 2000, 2003 and now 2006 model. They have a deadly speed wobble above 85-90 mph. I would love to try the Honda ST1300P just to see a speed above 110 mph. I purchased a civilian version ST1300 last week and love it! Breaking it in easy. Haven't seen triple digits on it yet. Love the windshield and overall balance. The way it handles in curves and the ground clearance is exceptional compared to the police Harley. Two thumbs up! When we get new motors I hope the Honda's have a chance with our agency.

    I mistakenly posted the other st1300 (forgetting the "P") They are almost the same bike....but I am on the ST1300P myself. I call BS on the high speed wobble. The only time you will get that is when you don't load the saddlebags evenly, and then get into some choppy air (such as behind a big truck). There are obvious solutions to this problem...Also, the majority of these cases are on bikes with the large trunk on the top which can cahnge the airflow. To answer the question posted, yes, the brakes are linked. 70-30. As far as slow course work, dont worry about it. They work fine. I have videos to prove it.
