My father bought this new in 2001, and I bought it from him in late 2003. I've put over 8,000 miles on it since then without a problem. It is my daily driver to work when the temp is above 30 degrees, and has never failed me. Being tall, the ride can be somewhat uncomfortable after riding for a couple hours at a time, but about the time my butt starts to hurt, it is time to get some gas anyway. Since I installed pipes and a new airfilter (and new jets), I am averaging 60mpg. I ride on 95 and 295 at speeds of 80mph regularly without a problem.


Upgrades:
I put a K&N air filter in it, slightly bigger carb jets, and a set of BUB Bad Dog pipes. The bike sounds AWESOME!! I installed a dual seat, tall sissy bar (for the wife), an engine guard, removeable saddlebags, and a removeable windshield. There is no shortage of accessories for this bike.
