    CTX700 manual 6 speed.

    Hi all, I have been riding 44 years and have owned about 50 bikes since the age of 16. I am getting weaker with age and the old back ain't what it used to be so in looking for a lighter bike I sat on a 700 at the local dealer and had to have one.I found a 2014 on CL with 2500 miles and now the candy red beauty is in the garage where the HD used to be...

    Welcome! I have a 2014 Candy Red DCT faired model and it puts a smile on my face with every ride and every time I see it in the garage. Enjoy!

    I have have the same bike a 2014-6spd-red since September 2015 and now have 5,300 miles on it! It is technically my first MC and couldn't be happier with it! BTW I am now 73! The weight, the speed, 67mpg and looks all keep me smiling!

    Welcome,
    Hope it gets you through many years of enjoyment.

    At 53 yrs old I got this 2014 CTX700 6 speed manual as my first bike ever in late 2016 and it's the best commuting vehicle I've ever had. I like getting 56 to 60 MPG in the city and 70 MPG on the mountain, and the full fairing with tall stock shield keeps me mostly dry above 35 MPH because I'm only 5'5.

    Some have said a new seat from Corbin or Seth Lamb or your local seat maker can help prevent back issues. Some said they could not ride this bike with stock seat more than an hour and the new seat gave lets them ride all day. My wife and I are fine for a few hours but still getting a new seat. It's on the top of our list after the 17+ yr old carpet gets replaced.

    Welcome, ss2wheels. This is a particularly friendly forum w very helpful people aboard. Similar tale here: lifelong motorcyclist on a host of different machines, have in my dotage developed arthritis and pulling a clutch in traffic is no fun. My 2014, red, faired, dct is just what the doctor ordered !!
    Have fun....
