ST1300 Farkel Day
What to do after a crisp early Easter morning ride? Install Farkels purchased over the winter. Today I installed the fairing and mirror deflectors. Also installed the tank protector pads. Got to drill my first 4 holes in the body work to secure everything.... Here's some pix if anyone's interested.

Thanks guys!

Next will be the Honda Quartet Harness. Honda makes an ST1300 accessory harness to plug directly into the main electrical system for all of my electronic goodies. No need to cut and tap into factory wires anymore. All of the left side fairings need to be removed for the install.

Thanks Vic! What's up with your bike? It's totally naked.... :d

If you look at the pic just right, It would make a pretty cool "Wing Bobber". :-J

That pic is about 10 years old Adam, from when I chose to paint it yellow. I just thought it looked cool so I threw it in there. Yep, does look like a bobber to me as well.

You are going to like those.. fairing ones divert the heat away from your legs..
Mirror ones work so well you have to stick you hands out into the wind in the summer to get some air on your hands

That is my goal with the fairing deflectors. Get rid of some of the HEAT! :twisted:

Anything over 80 deg.f outside and the heat that comes out will cook your shins. I'm hoping that the mirror deflectors will put the air stream up on my forearms.

They should do all that for you.. I found I loved them on my 04 ST.. ride in over 95 degrees down south though, and you'll have roasted nuts Confusedhock: from under the front of the seat..

The deflectors worked great on my old ST1100. Glad to hear they'll work on the 13. :YMAPPLAUSE:

I've heard that about the seat. Some insulate under the seat area.

I can't take the heat when it's that hot outside(typical nor' easter). When it get's above 90f, I usually don't ride. It's like riding around on a blowtorch. Living on the Lake, I usually take out the boat or waverunner. Kid's and I are also into snorkeling.

It's funny how I was on a Wing and you were on a ST. Now I'm on a ST and your on a Wing..... :d

Extreme heat? I don't want to talk about it. If I didn't ride when it's over 90, I'd have already missed a few days this year. My cut off is about 100. But even in Summer, the cool hills start about an hour north of town. Guess which direction I head?

And I have always admired the ST series. I am a V4 kinda guy. I love the valve covers peeking out.

So what are you thinkin' of olddude? Sport touring, full dress tour, cruiser, sport? Or just waiting for something interesting to come along that's priced just right?

100??? Oh boy! I don't know how you guys, way down south, can take it! Especially you being in Arizona. I would take that your summers are like our winters. BUT....You have a nice advantage.... You guys can ride all year. 8)

The V-4 is a great engine. Torque curve as flat as Nebraska. It pulls hard all the way up to the rev limiter. Smooth, quiet and limitless power. It's progressively sneaky too. Just a quick bang up through the gears will get you into trouble quickly with law enforcement! :d
