Best for Value
By Robert(Owner), Jan. 14, 2010
I have been riding this superb motorcycle since October of 2007 and have logged over 20,000 exhilarating miles. Maintenance is user-friendly and trouble-free. I love its clean shaft drive that does not splatter chain lube all over nor does not risk snapping belt drives. The beefy front tires with in... Read Full Review

the 5.3 gallon tank
By michael a le bellot(Owner), Aug. 27, 2010
Ths bike supposedly has a 5.3 gallon tank yet I have only been able to use 4 gallons at a time before the light goes on and the bike actually runs out of gas. The other 1.3 gallons might be in there but they are just not making it up the tank to be of any use. A qualified mechanic has told me he thi... Read Full Review
