Summary:

Smooth, relaxing, forgiving

Faults:

Battery died due to neglect, while in winter storage. I got a battery tender and the replacement battery is fine.

General Comments:

The bike is more powerful than you first think. The unhurried, low thump of the v-twin fools you as you accelerate. Next thing you know, you are in license shredding territory.

Not like my Yamaha, where the screamingly busy thrashing of valves makes you think you are going fast, when you ain't.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
