Bill Cruise's ST page
and other motorcycle information on the Web
Please send me any entries for this area, and I'll put them up for all
- A listing of many of the ST specific
part numbers and other first and third party parts stuff which
frequently gets discussed on the list.
- A compendium of some of the
how-to-do-it suggestions which periodically get discussed on the
list. Also has links to all known FAQ's, Ryder approved, or not!
- Every now and
then I will cut out someone's opinion on a particular piece.
- The entire collection of vast
STOC wisdom, including, of course, tyres and headshake.
Honda Customer Service
- Phone for Honda Customer Service is
(310) 532-9811. (Not sure if this is national or regional.) Address is

- Links to
merchants who sell things which just might be of interest to ST1100

ST1100 clubs and groups

Steinar Fremme's STOC Pages
Honda Sport Touring Association Official HSTA Page
Pan European / ST 1100 Clubs Worldwide
ST1100 photo gallery
A listing of links
to some ST photos and graphics. Some are here in my pages, and
others are scattered over the world. As far as I know, none are
considered proprietary unless noted.
ST1100 Riders on the Web
- A good number of
the ST1100 owners maintain a Web presence. I keep a list of the STOC
links I run across, and try to keep it updated on a sporatic basis.
If you want to visit some great biking people, just click this way.
- There are a lot
more ST'ers who lurk, contribute, and flame on the list. I have sort
of kept a list of the email signatures of most of the people who show
up there. Hope your browser doesn't gag on this non-HTML text file!
It's in alphabetical order, and you just might be able to search it.
Entries are separated by "/--------". Beware, however, it's already
up to about 100K!
- This is the official
list, right from the KOTL's page. It has STOC number, name, city,
state, country, province, etc., and email address.
- This is the official
list, as posted by the KOTH periodically, and spasmodically, on the
STOC mailing list.
STOC Events - at least some of them
- May 10 - 12, Blue Ridge Cycle Camp Ground, NC
- May 31 - June 2, Auburn, NY
- Ashland Oregon, July 30, 31, and
STOC logo items
There isn't a real business in ST items, but occasionally one of
the members gets an insane idea that he or she will make their fortune
selling the perfect item to the listers. I will try to keep a current
list of things which are available, but this is a pretty ephemeral
market. Contact the people directly if you are interested.
- Peter Engel, #831, is selling all sorts
of STOC logo embrodiered clothing - hats, sweats, polos, jacktets...
Information which might help set up some great motorcycle
rides. This includes such things as routes, bike campgrounds,
- Gets you to Dale Coyner's home page,
where you can get info and order a copy. I did, and I liked the book.
I read parts of it again before I went to EASTOC. It convinced me
that I had to do Deal's Gap, even if I am not the greatest rider ever.
If I had time, I would try to do some of the rides exactly as he laid
them out. In any case, it's a good book if you are going to that
section of the country.
- Info on a number of good bike roads.
- Info on order an
adventure map, which is designed for bikers.
- Not directly motorcycle related, but a good
- This looks like the start of a good page on the Blue Ridge. The
author is located in Virginia, so it is oriented to a more Norther
part than the North Carolina based pages.
Other Motorcycle Groups
There are, hard to believe, other bikes than ST1100's, and some of
these actually have a Web presence. Here are some I have come across
in my exploring. Some are bike specific, like the STOC, and others
are open. Enjoy...
- Don Presten, an STOC'er is
the Webmaster on this page
Other Motorcycle Links
Lots of other folks maintain lists of motorcycle related links.
Here are some of the best of them.
- This will lead to some links
to merchants who sell things which just might be of interest to ST1100
- This page, hosted by the SDMC, and
ex-ST'er Don Presten, has over 2000, non-guaranteed motorcycle links.
It's not the most organized place I've seen, so you may want to try
your browser's search feature.
Other Motorcycle Stuff
This is the stuff that hasn't fit into one of my categories yet.
There's a bit of everything in here. Very well indexed. You may not
always find what you want, but it's often interesting reading. See
what they have to say about favorite STOC subjects such as
countersteering, oil, or tyres.
