I love it!


Nothing since I repaired the problems when I bought it.

General Comments:

It is a seriously fast and enjoyable ride.

It was too high for my short legs. I fixed this situation by ordering 11" Virago aftermarket shocks, which bolted right up with no problem. But a big bump in the road tends to make it bottom out a little too soon, and makes the ride a little rougher. But if anyone has short legs, this will solve their problem.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
