Picked up my 2006 last Thur. and have put a little over 2000m on the way home. I see what everyone means about needing another gear!! I shifted from 5th to 5th half a dozen times! I love the bike tho, might forget to stop at home! My cruise kicked off twice yesterday then would not work at all today. Something to look at when I get home. As others have said the MPG drops pretty good if the RPM's are high, but it's good around 3000. Snow outside of Alburqueque this morning, not on road but it was COLD. I came through the SE corner of Utah and I need to thank all the members that suggested this, it was awesome! Overall, I am happy with the bike, and am really enjoying the trip. I would post pics but I accidently sent my camera and Go Pro home with my golf clubs!! My phone is getting fill if I can figure out how to post them. Thanks again to all who gave route suggestions, I wish I could do them all !!
