A superb mid=size cruiser
By Ray Overton(Owner), Oct. 4, 2008
I have been riding for nearly 40 yrs. now. I was partners in a motorcycle escort service for years so I was exposed to a lot of motorcycles and size ranges.

El Paso to Ft Worth
By John Woodcox(Owner), Sep. 15, 2008

The bike is really comfortable, handles great in traffic, on the highway, cruising around the lakes.... Read Full Review

Just got it
By Lonnie(Owner), Nov. 22, 2008
I picked up a left over '08 today and have been suitably impressed. I've only had it out for about 20 miles, but it's miles above any v twin I've ever owned in terms of riding experienced. Only my '02 Honda GL1500 exceeds it in terms of torque. I really like this bike so far, it's early, but no c... Read Full Review
