The 800SS is the best bike I have ridden!!



General Comments:

To me this is the best motorcycle I have owned, but I can't really tell you why. I have ridden faster better handling bikes, but the 800ss is the best "balanced" bike I have owned. Simple to work on, light and just plain "right" to ride. I am keeping this one for a very long time.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
