Honda Pan European

#1
Honda Pan European ST1300 to commute 110 miles a day, year round from somewhere like Aldershot to somewhere like Portsmouth. Good idea?

Depending on the age/model of the bike,it might be worth checking the reason why various police forces have abandoned pan europeans.

On the whole though,a very good bike for that sort of commute.

Happy and safe riding fella.

Try the baby Pan; Dullville. Much cheaper, just as quick top end.

I use mine 160 mile round trip each day. It just sits at the speed I require :) and hoovers the miles up. Economical and shaft drive to boot. It is designed for commuting and whilst it aint ever gone set the roads ablaze, the top box, large panniers and heated grips do the job very nicely.

Also consider BMW (twin not K series) or something along the lines of a TransAlp or Africa Twin. Sounds odd, but the less plastic there is, the easier it is to wash the salt and s**t out in the winter.

Mondeo actually, but the pleasure of watching people thumb there love button stuck in traffic when we pass on our bikes is satisfaction in itself.

I have BMW R1200GS. I use it all weathers and often travel from ooooooop norff to the smoke on it.(and back)

No complaints from me.Shaft drive is a def plus for something to look at.
