Big enough to do 700+ miles a day in reasonable comfort, small enough to be easy to handle at low speeds and backing, not the fastest bike out there, but can run away from bigger cruisers in the corners, easy to work on, very dependable. Lots of afftermarket support to make it easy to make your own. My 1st bike, and looking for something bigger, but intend to keep it till it either falls aprta or I do. Guessing I will before it does. LOL!!
