I have 20 years of riding all makes of bikes. This is the best overall do-everything bike.
It gets great gas mileage, is light and inexpensive. It's smooth shifting and has easy handling.
Everyone worries about vibration with this bike but I don't see it until 6k rpm. which is over 80 mph in 5th. Even a Gold Wing only runs 4k at 80 mph.
The bike surprised me at how well it did on the highway. I really like the windscreen. The tank holds five gallons at 50 mph.
When I first test drove it, the front end geometry felt too light and fidgety but the online websites said to dial in some preload and it worked.
The only thing the bike needs for me is handlebar risers which are available online.
I have the Honda stereo and it worked good to about 70 mph. with the windscreen up.
You can get seats heated grips and larger saddlebag lids as well. The only thing I did not like was the seat but I never like stock seats so I added a bead pad and it was fine.
Hard bags, adjustable windscreen, good range shaft, drive fuel injection = a great, low maintenance, all-around bike.
Unfortunately, the bike did not sell well in 2010/11 so it may not be around long. You can get a great deal on one now. I can't recommend it enough.
