Awesome Bike!
By Dee Casso(Owner), Nov. 30, 2011
Like another poster said...don't even sit on it unless you are ready to buy. My FB is so comfy and navigates easily in city traffic. I get a bunch of compliments on it. Many people find it hard to believe a lady rides a big bike like this...I wouldn't have any other bike!!! Read Full Review
