Hello all
This bike came to me by way of a good friend who thought I'd enjoy it's adventuresque styling and design.
He's right! I have a little over a thousand miles on her so far and am pleasantly surprised, even when compared to the BMW R-bikes with which I'm familiar.
My biggest dislikes so far are the Givi side cases. They're just ugly... but roomy!
I would also prefer second gear to be a bit lower.
My biggest likes are the engine grunt and overall ergonomics and handling.

Mods I plan to make are:
Replacement seat
Centerstand
Skid plate
Crash bars
Highway pegs
Heated grips
Front fairing storage
?

I'm looking forward to meeting other adventure riders.
Thanks for having me in the group!

Thanks, Gert.
Any reccomendations for securing a gently used hayes manual? I'm not finding any at the usual places, and there do not appear to be any on the marketplace.

Regrettably, I'm unable to help you with a service manual source. Being a K3 model Vee, perhaps you may find a source by looking on Google. Any service manual that covers your ride, is better than nothing if the price is good.
