Love this bike!

The wife and I just did a couple days of hard riding, and while the backside gets a bit sore after an 8 hours in the saddle, this thing is amazing. Purrs like a kitten, and roars like a lion!

So nice when you can get out for a ride with the wife on a bike you enjoy. Thanks for posting. Reminds me I need to make time for a ride again soon. GSX-S1000 content? This bike DOES have a very smooth, enjoyable powerband.

Hey Reagenn, what bag is that on your bike? (sorry if you answered that elsewhere and I missed it)

Old Jack, it's a Nelson-Rigg Black CL-1060-S Sport Tail/Seat Bag. Had it a couple years now and it works great. Small and compact for everyday but expands for trips.

8 hours in the stock saddle? Ouch! I can't go that long on this thing. Good for you!

I was however thinking the same as you the other day. Went for a rip and man do I just love this bike. It's not going anywhere for a long long time.

Yes, it was a long ride home. However, it is the Saddleman seat so that helped.

Yes, we had ridden over to Hot Springs for a day then back home across the Talimena Scenic Byway. It was 70F out so we couldn't pass it up. Beautiful scenery and beautiful weather on a great bike. Hard to top that!
