A big comfortable all purpose road bike with a great motor
Oil leak when new. Seal replaced under warranty.
Head light bulbs and instrument bulbs have been replaced.
Carburetors plugged up once, my own fault; left it parked all winter.
I should probably want a new motorcycle, but I don't. I have so much fun on this thing every time I ride it.
I had a DynoJet carburetor kit and some Micron slip-ons installed a few years ago with impressive results. The motor has a great personality, the power is easily accessible with no four cylinder buzz.
Everyone says these bikes are top heavy, it's only noticeable when not moving or at extremely slow speeds, I don't consider it a problem.
Very stable at high speeds. Big sweeping curves are lots of fun. Even though it's not considered a real sport bike, it does pretty well against the repli-racers on a curvy road.
I could get a serious sport bike, but then I'd have to give up some comfort and I'm not old enough for a cruiser, so, I think I'll keep it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
