Great practical all around bike for in-town or road touring
Stator went at 50000 miles. Also had heavy oil use, a qt for 400 miles, found the stupid previous owner had removed the air filter to increase performance. Found a nearly new engine from a '94, now has 21000 flawless miles.
Good handler, comfortable, has a unique trunk that can eat a grocery cart.
Fine touring bike, although not for those who like to cruise all day at very high speed (80+). Will do it, but mpg normally about 50 goes to upper 30's. At legal speeds, range is about 180 miles.
Most owners replace the stock windshield with Clearview, passengers report a lot of buffeting.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
