Summary:

Pound for pound, dollar for dollar - best bike on the road!

Faults:

I have had no issues at all with the bike.

General Comments:

Very easy to ride, has nice balance, very good pickup. It is not scary fast, but has plenty of power.

Love the look and the feel of the bike. Handles well. I understand that if progressive springs/shocks are installed it handles even better. Braking is more than adequate. Handles as if it is a much smaller cc bike.

I would recommend a seat upgrade, as is with most bikes in the cruiser line. It is a great bike!
