First 500 miles.........and still can say wow!!
I've had the bike 12 days and 535 miles now, and I still can say I love this bike. I took the bike Sunday for a road trip to my parents house, about 75 miles one way through the Pocono Mountains in PA. Until this trip I always felt a bit uneasy at speeds over 50, the wind buffet felt wrong. I had the feeling that the wind was pushing me and the bike around. On this trip I remembered that you should sit as close to the tank as possible, what a different it made to move forward. The bike felt a whole new machine, I had the bike up to 70 with no problems. A by-product of moving forward in the seat is that my hands don't get numb any were near as much. Today I replaced the stock grips with a set of gel grips, will take the bike out for a spin tomorrow to test them.
