Okay, its been over 4 years now of switching between my 05 1300 (26K miles) and my 02 1100 (77K miles). Both are bone stock. Yes, 99% of my riding is commuting to/from work, 70+ miles a day, 99% freeway. I ride my 13 for the first two days then the 11 the last two days (yea, blessed with a 4 day work week). I have been doing this for years now and my grin is the biggest when I climb on the 11. Yes the 13 has more power but candidly, that's it. I dislike the instrumentation (cant see it very well), dislike the short wheelbase for the freeway commute, dislike the suspension, dislike the uncontrollable idle of 2500 in the morning, dislike the higher RPM hence poorer gas mileage, etc. The ST1100 is to motorcycling as the SR-71 was to flight...way ahead of its time.
