Bought my first ST1100 used, in 1997 and clocked over 350,000km in under 4 years. Then traded it in for a ST1100Y (2001 model) with a beefed up 40amp alternator. Now 11 years later, it is still soldering on without any issues. Changed the alternator, starter relay, clutch sensor, timing belt, water pump, some time back. Other than the usual oil and tire change, there are no issues with the bike at all. I can take it up to northern Thailand from Singapore and bike on a dime and not... (read more)

137,000km and still running! only oil and gaz... like a car! in 10 years, I got only two problems, shutting valve came defect 3 years ago, $50 repear, and a broken wire around cooling fan after a very rough road in northern Quebec to visit Manic 5 power dam. Do you know a motorcycle which battery lasted 10 years? I changed battery last year... before I got starting problems. Best than a women... it never say NO! If I absolutely want to find a reason to dislike it a little, it's gravity... (read more)

Got the Honda to do a round Great Britain trip for Cancer Research UK. What a bike. On the long motorway trips it ate up the mileage and gave me 72mpg. Wish it would give the same on a day to day going to work trip. Only get 32mpg for that.
Anyway it never missed a beat and easily pulled me, three loaded panniers and a back seat with a tent etc strapped on around.
Very easy to work on. Pannels come off and on with no fuss. If you go to buy one look out for rotten Exhaust systems and also... (read more)

Honda st1100 47,000 Bike is not to bad engine is very good. BUT the clutch is sticking £400 the brakes need a complete strip and service £208 as they are siezed. The swing arm is rotten ebay £35 and the frame is quiet rusty. The handle barr cover screws have rotted into the ally. Wheels are pitted re coated £80. Before this bike i owned a Triumph Trophy 900 same year it was mint and in my opinion a better bike but did have very poor economy. But never striped the brakes or done the wheels... (read more)

I have owned my 2000 non ABS pan ST1100 for about a month now having moved up from a Deauville. I only passed my bike test in May so I am still a relatively inexperienced rider. I am still intimidated by the pan's huge weight but only when getting it in and out of the garage. Once out on the road it totally transforms into a different bike. It can be trickled around bends and mini roundabouts at rediculously slow speeds in 1st or second gears. My confidence is building day by day. Honda has... (read more)

I bought my 2001 ABS/TCS/CBS ST1100 a couple of years ago - it spent its life as a police covert traffic motorcycle, and as you would expect has been serviced correctly, and has been run 8+ hours per day, everyday. This fact would normally concern me, but not with this bike......All the emergency services across the world have used this bike for the best part of a decade, and some still do, even though it was discontinued by Honda back in 2002.... That ' s says a lot. The ST1100's engine is... (read more)

I have tried Honda Goldwings before and they seem a bit big and heavy for my use. I love the look and feel of the Honda ST1100. It is light and very responsive for a touring bike. (read more)

I did not like this bike when I first purchased it in 2000. But now after 8 years of ownership I wouldnt have any other bike out there.
I guess this machine has me spoiled. (read more)

Well I've been riding all sorts of bikes since I was 17 I'm now 36 and was told when I bought my Pan that it was an old man's bike. I was 30 then and must say it's the best 6 years of riding I've had. I paid £4500 for a 1997 model with 17.000 miles on the clock. Like I say that was 6 years ago.....she now has 87.000 miles on her and has never let me down. The speed and handling is out of this world ( The Police have been using them for well over ten years ) I think this says's it all. As for... (read more)
