Almost perfect machine
By Ed Betty(Owner), Dec. 4, 2008
I say that as nothing is perfect at everything but this bike is pretty close. I have 75K miles on it, commuting to work, 300 mi day rides, 600 *weekend rides and 8k+ cross country trip. It does it all with 40+mpg, comfort, and a whole lot of fun under the right hand. I did replace the seat, and adde... Read Full Review

A smooth rider
By Keith B(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
After 23,000 miles, this bike turns the miles very easily. Yamaha has not quite gotten the wind management figured out, so even after a couple of windshield changes, the buffeting will keep your head buzzing long after the ride is done.
