1990 ST1100

My other V4, should have been called a VFR1100ST. Not fast, great handling or well-braked, but you will be able to keep riding endlessly with a relaxed position, loafing motor and great wind protection. Actually with a little suspension work, this is a solid handler, provided respect is given to the slow/very stable steering and brakes which have a lot of mass to deal with.

Not sure about your ST1100 but mine is plenty fast. My ST is rated for a top speed of 155 just like my VFR. Just doesn't feel as fast because of the fairings. I like to think of my VFR as a Corvette and my ST as a Cadillac CTS. ?

Well I might be being a little hard on the ST. It has such a heavy crank that it never seems to accelerate that hard, but certainly has a good turn of speed. I don't think I'd get it to 155 mph without a cliff being involved, but it certainly gets up to 130 mph without a lot of drama. I do love the low CG and stable 18" wheel steering, and the ride position.
