I wouldn't mind one again for shorter day trips on secondary roads. They handle pretty good and are fun to ride.
600 or 700 mile days? Wow thats pretty Spartan...amazing what we got away with when we were young...
My plan is downsizing from 500+ lb bikes to something lighter..these bikes harken back to a simpler time..and the pure essence of riding..2 lane roads.. and the VYR every year..and just banging around local backroads ... If nowhere else i will get to test ride one at the VYR in Sept...
Don't speak unless you can improve upon the silence....
