Good morning from Virginia. Been there, done that. Last November I did it. It took a few thousand miles to get over the psychological weight factor, but now that I'm settled in I can truly say this bus is easier to ride and has never made me feel uncomfortable about what she was going to do.
Trade in value on my 06 1300C 17,000 miles ,as seen in the picture I posted below, was $ 4,500. I sold it locally for $4,800.00 The 1300R and the 1300C are different bikes. I only post this for what I got for what I had.
