The GF loves it. She has done time on my CB and KTM 690 (not really good comparisons), but she raved about the seat and leg bend. She is 5'7" and gets cramped up on the CB after a couple hours.

GEICO just said $1,080 for this bike annually. That is on a 3 bike policy. Sheesh. My FJR was less and my CB1000R is less. Go figure.

Don't worry. I wouldn't even fart out there under these conditions. I will be hitting hotels so I can use all available daylight. I get one long solo per year. I use it all up.
