I just bought a new to me 2007 GPS bike about 3 weeks ago that had 1800 miles on it. It now has about 2800 on it ! My wife has already been on it twice, which equals the amount of times she got on the back of my Suzuki M109 in 2 years. I can now ask whether she wants to take the vette or the bike, and she will respond with lets take the wing (she calls it the Gold, but whatever ! I have had a few sportbikes (fzr600, cbr600f3, and Triumph Daytona 675) this thing handles great for as big as it is! I accidentally dragged my toe going thru a corner with her on back, and she asked what was that? I just laughed and told her nothing until we got home. I am loving this bike! I am also catching a whole lot of crap since I am only 38 on my geezer glide, but I really just laugh because they just don't understand ! My harley buddies quiet down when I ask if they want to run em, and my crotch rocket buddies quiet down when I ask if they want to ride 500 miles . I was going to wait until I was 40 to get the bike, but I am glad that I bought this bike a couple years early. Thanks for listening feel free to post your thoughts! No offense to the older gents, but you all have been holding out on us young guys !
