The engine is smooth and powerful with major power available at any engine speed. The throttle is a bit sensitive at lower speeds but not unacceptably so. Handling and braking are quite good and the bike is stable even in significant crosswinds. The weight does show up at walking speeds and the electric reverse is a life saver when backing uphill. Storage space available is phenomenal. With the addition of the taller windshield and air wings, air management is near perfect. The seat is good and my wife loves the rear seat but the passenger backrest leans too far back. For my size/weight, more outboard support would be desirable in the driver's seat and I may switch to an aftermarket seat. The suspension could be more compliant to smooth tar strips. Overall, we love it and would buy it again.


Upgrades:
Taller (2.5") Honda windshield, Baker air Wings, Kury driver foot boards & heel toe shifter, Utopia driver's backrest, Garmin GPS, trunk wing w/lights, Bike MP3 GPS mic interface, J&M Digital Music MP3/iPod/Aux Player, J&M deluxe passenger audio controller & misc. other smaller add-ons.
