Well I have about 1200 miles on since darkside 2 weeks ago. I am really happy with the new Altimax. Did over 600 miles this past weekend along with Diehard and 2 other couples. Poker run included. Took twisties just fine and man does this bike have some bite now. Had a chance when the wife was not on the back to twist the throttle and dump the clutch. Voyager alone weighs over 900 pounds with My setup and up came the front tire about a foot. Before the altimax it would spin the tire with Me only. Highway ride is smoother also. Takes the jolts of the highway cracks out some. Wife is not giving me them little grunts like She used to on the humped joints. It is amazing the people that have never heard of darkside and the looks You get when some see that big fat tire under there. My bike has alway drawn lookers and it makes Me feel great. Brother-in-law told Me i could have sold this bike this weekend. Not yet! I got it just how I like it. She is a keeper.
