Another MN owner
Got the black ADV model from Hienen's here. Live in Andover, 20 minutes from Larsons. Just got back from my first significant road trip with this bike (Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, Cooke City, Red Lodge). I really feel like I didn't give up anything from my 1150 GS Adventure. Maybe a little less seat of the pants acceleration even though 1/4 mile numbers are similar. Just as comfortable, good wind management, etc. Did have to make a stop at a Suzuki dealer in Idaho Falls because a bolt wiggled out. Harley guys i was riding with made a big deal out of that.
Anyway, no regrets here, and I am sure you will be very happy too. The highway pegs (Yann's) were fantastic on this trip.
