Returned yesterday from a 3 day trip up the trace. 1024 miles. Left here early Sunday in a "frog strangler" rain that the bike handled without any problems. Weather cleared and actually turned cool, Monday morning, 58F north of Tupelo, Miss.
This bike is definitely a keeper! Avg. for the trip was 58mpg, with a range from 55 to 63mpg. Needless to say, I pretty much ride like the old grandpa that I am, but we did enjoy a few twisty roads in Tenn. I highly recommend local Rte. 99 from Hohenwald to Waynesboro.
I do now understand why many replace the wind screen. OEM was fine at 50-55 mph on the Trace, but at higher speeds my neck was a bit sore. I will soon make the change to the Givi AF214.
