So I've been riding since a kid when I got a Honda Cub. I've had my current bike since I was 16. Others have come and gone but that 21 year old Nighthawk has been a constant companion. Its got to the point that it's time me to move on. I've had two back surgeries and back pain is an issue. I don't want a big heavy cruiser. I've had one and just don't enjoy big heavy bikes. Everywhere I look people rave about the comfort. How is the saddle? Any must have upgrades to the bike (not just comfort). I'm a pretty even mix between county roads and highway. Should I go for the 1000 or is the wee adequate for 80 mph cruise? Thanks for any insight.
