I forgot to add, I have the 650. The bike has been wonderful with zero problems. Im getting ready to leave for a 10,000 road trip, I have no doubt the bike will do just fine.

Wow, that's amazing. I wonder what percentage of MC's go to 100K?? Hell, I wonder how many get to 50K?

You rule!

"How rare that we can point ourselves inevitably west and go, go, go. Run out the highway and the hills. Slide our fingertips over the creases and the valleys of the impossibility that is America. You cant grasp its vastness from a plane. Its diversity from a map. You have to put your feet on the ground. Your hands in the dirt." - Zach Bowman
