Congrats Vinny!
Great to ride with the SO. Mine won't even sit on my bike.

Your wife is going to get sick of you wanting to borrow her bike.
We met two guys on a trip to James Bay.
They both had the 1000 models.
These guys were serious long distance riders.
One was 76 years old. That guy shure could ride.
He said that his wife is 73 years old and she's right on his tail
when they go riding.
Best of luck with the bikes.

Very cool but how do you talk your wife into getting a bike you would also like to ride?

You're getting an 07 with ABS? I didn't think they were available yet. I had heard November?
