Just some added thoughts. I seem to recall that the seat height/feel was one of the main complaints when the star 1300 came out and in more recent models they did lower the seat height. However, even with the lower height, you still feel like you're sitting on top of the bike...I know I did when I tested a new model not too long ago.
I am sure the Star 1300 is a good bike. That being said, I remember when it wasn't too long after that model first came out I was strolling around a dealership (Honda and Yamaha) in Florida looking. In the used bike section they had two Star 1300s. both the first model year and first low miles, for sale. I just wondered why two owners sold them or traded them in so soon.
