In October 2010 I purchased a 2007 Honda ST1300 to replace my 2004 Honda Sabre 1100. While I really enjoyed the Sabre I found it was better suited for weekend trips and I wanted to cover more miles during my outings. The Sabre only had a range of 150 miles per tank whereas the ST1300 has a range of 350 miles per tank and is built to eat up many miles per day.
My first long trip on the ST1300 was with Terrie and his wife Donalda on a loop from Stayton, Oregon south to Elkton on Hwy 38 with a quick stop at Loon Lake then over to the coast at Reedsport. Next we went north on Hwy 101 to Waldport then east on Hwy 34 to Corvallis and back to Stayton.
