Great Bike but could be more comfortable
By Roy Jourdan(Owner), Nov. 15, 2009
Read all the reviews about this bike before buying it. The engine is terrific and handles well in town and on the back roads. This bike though has one of the most un-comfortable seats I have ever had on a motorcycle. Read Full Review
