Pretty sure i will sell my Vee before the end of the year. I've had a few bikes over the years and comparing my current ride to the previous ride (09 R1 Yamaha), I have to say I liked the R1 better. I've done the exact same trip over the same time frame (roughly 3600miles) and my bike just sucks. Even with a broken in Sargent seat, I thought my rear would fall off. I'm not even going to mention the wind/airflow issues. I was actually more comfortable overall on the R1 on the trips taken (stock seat). But my last trip to Florida convinced me that no matter what I seem to do the bike just doesn't work for me. Parked it and have to clean it after the Fla trip. Mechanically it's flawless. I'll post an add on the sale section when I can have enough time to clean the bike and take some pictures (which won't be before the end of the month). All I want is to pay off the loan. Probably owe $5900. 12 Vee adventure w/12000mi numerous farkles.
