Summary:

Top of the line. Best one I have ever ridden!

Faults:

Make sure you replace the grommets on the battery covers; they will blow off due to wearing after a couple of years. The covers cost $225.00 as opposed to spending $5 or $10 dollars now. I guess you would call them grommets. They hold the plate or so called dust covers on. Peace out.
