Wish I'd purchased this bike first

Nothing.

Best bike that I have owned to date.

The overall performance and handling, compared to the Royal Star, is like night and day!

Absolutely love it!

This bike, as it sits, will be used 12 months out of the year, and I live in New Jersey.

Previous motorcycleHonda CBX1037

Summary:

Don't think ride could be improved

Faults:

No problems.

General Comments:

After riding 2,280 miles in the last 6 days, I found the bike to be very comfortable. It handled well in hard rain, and protects the rider from weather. Riding in temps in the 50s with a jacket and light gloves was all that was needed to stay warm.

I am getting between 43 and 44 MPG. 38 around town.
