Pete, not to hijack the thread... but I am not looking for speed, just power. I am presently 260lbs and riding a goldwing. I expect that the wee will be fine almost always, it is just the big hills I question. Need power to push me up without question.
There are 10 types of people, those who know binary and those who don't.
What I ride now:
2013 Honda GoldWing (The Lady)
2014 V-strom 650 (The Mistress)
Previously: 07 Ultra Classic, 95 Softail, 80 gs450l
