    The only benefit of the 1800 is fuel injection. Now if you go long periods without riding, thats a huge benefit.

    It's not the only benefit but the 1300 and 1800 are both great bikes and equally with having!

    Dual front discs, linked brake system, tapered neck bearings, better rear stock shocks.

    clearly its a matter of choice..

    but the difference of 1300 to 1800.. has many things... way more then the above items.

    and a lot more then just fuel injection.

    my 1986 Honda Goldwing SEi was fuel injected... and Way more computer stuff.

    GOD, am I old. LOL
    Reminds me of an old joke, The Lone Ranger and Tonto are riding along and suddenly ahead of them, on the bluff, appear a line of Indians. They turn and spur their horses back in the direction they came from when another line of Indians appear. They look to the left and there are more Indians, same to the right. The Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and says "We are surrounded by hundreds of blood thirsty Indians Tonto, What are we going to do"? Tonto says "what you me we pale face"!!!!

    My dad told me that joke when I was young.... then after that, every time I referred to us as "we", he would repeat the punch line....

    Thanks for all the great info. Where I live (the Southwest US) there is LOTS of wide open roads. I do enjoy LONG riding days (my longest was 874miles in 16 hrs ) with plenty of 5-600 mile days. I'm also 6'2" and 220lb. Keeping all that in mind, as much as I loved my 1300R, I think it's going to be an 1800R this time. Now I just have to find the right bike/color etc.

    Ive had both the 1300 for 2 years and then an 1800N came along i just could not resist.
    Im 5'9 1/2 should be about 170 but lately 185+
    I loved the 1300 fast nimble and a smooth ride.
    the 1800 Yes its top heavy (means nothing once rolling) and I throw it up from the stand instead of just using a knee to knock it upright like the 1300,
    to me the difference is in the ride. the 1800 just feels like you can go all day Mind you Ive done 10-12 hours a day on each but the 1800 just feels like a big comfy couch as i roll the highway, and the extra ponies in it well they sure do wide up nice if you want to.

    Good call for that kind of riding, I think... and wishing you good luck finding the right one... enjoy the journey!
