The West is the best, but the coast has the most: 6000 miles, two weeks

Story to follow.

It sure is. Carries a load easily, plenty of power even loaded, fantastic high speed stability and decent wind protection and reliable. Only problem I had was a leaky front valve stem. I loved traveling on it.

I will say that it is a heavy machine, I'm sure with my load it was around 700 pounds as curb weight is 620-something. I couldn't really feel it above forty mph, but below that I could feel it.

Having put over 180,000kms on two of them from 1998-2004 I would agree. I still miss them. Great bikes.

Enjoy the ride Johnny...
