Excellent Ride
By Tyler Hansen(Owner), Apr. 5, 2009
I just got my used 2008 today with less than 750 miles on her. I rode 85 miles home and loved it. I also own a Suzuki M109 and I find this was easier to ride and more forgiving to manage. It even has more grunt than the M109, if you can believe that!! Read Full Review
