Thanks bud! Yeah the winds are the only downfall of this bike, it doesn't slay them with confidence. I suspect most guys who haven't ridden out here can't imagine it, but they are NASTY. It's sucked from OK through NV. No worries on the quiet night, honestly I needed it after the last 3 days. I've already popped 2 Advil PM's...really blowing it out I sin city ain't I Thank you sir. CLS my offer still stands if you want to come ride the 300 to know for sure.
