Absolutely no faults with this motorcycle.

General Comments:

An excellent motorcycle on the highway.

Shortly after purchasing it, I installed a Two-Brothers slip-on muffler, which made the V4 engine sound amazing.

Mid range power is phenomenal.

My two complaints are: vibrations always made my right hand fall asleep during long rides, and the seat made my buttocks fall asleep during long rides.

General Comments:

I have ridden many bikes, having previously been in the MC business (retail/service) for many years. It is as comfortable as a touring bike yet still looks and "feels" sporty. The gas mileage is a bit higher than some other bikes, but it is still cheaper to drive than my truck!

I run Metzler tires exclusively. I have found trust and confidence from this bike and rubber combination and would never deviate from it.

After owning this bike and loving it dearly for so long, I wondered, how many more miles can I rack up before something really goes wrong? So I got another one, same year with only 12,000 kms on it. It's waiting in the barn. I suspect it will be there for a while.
