Better than a what.

Wow, I believe this bike is above a goldwing and a yamaha on That is absurd. I’m not the biggest expert on this but I have a good friend who has two of in excellent condition and he’s kind enough to have let me put hundred miles on the two of them.

My impression. these bikes are to junk. Now let me say that he loves and has ridden many other including his wife’s FAR nicer somthing Yamaha v-4 Star I think there must be about his ego that keeps him selling his two Victory’s and buying a to her bike, he always has a much smile when he get’s off her and often takes her bike if not riding with us. just to the battery charged. LOL

So, why do I think this bike is junk? Well, to start it is a comfortable and nice feeling to get on and it does have good, but not power. The two nicest things on bike are the floorboards and the hard nice space and closing

Everything else on the bike less nice the further you While some people love it the factory pipes on bikes are so loud that I as a rider I am constantly trying to the throttle to save my ears! And all noise causes vibration the bike which adds to

I’ve taken several friends for rides on these and every one of them commented they couldn’t deal more than an hour on the and that for the last half most of what they thinking about was not how beautiful the were but how painful the noise

Ok, so some of you think that awesome, good, you’ll get you want in that flat out department. I might mention his wife will only her bike in front of him because too painful to ride behind him leaving intersections and such.

As for the let’s just say it’s not the thing. I don’t know if the mountings, lack of balance in the or what but the level of vibration is although no change at all for riders of pre hogs. On the highway my hands go almost immediately at 70-80

There is a slight difference the two bikes, one takes about 5 for my hands to start to numb, the about 8-10. It’s a these bikes should be stars.

Shifting is somewhat clunky, not the I’ve experienced but the worst on of such new vintage and low miles. One of is often difficult to get into and the other one simply does not go neutral. can you say PITA! What a that becomes at long lights and driving through

The seat is generous in proportion, for the passenger, but feels like a within 45mins. This has the experience of everyone I’ve on the machines and the owner has bought a gel pad for himself!

Adding to this especially after an hour of worn down by the noise, and hard seat is the suspension. The virtually crashes through bumps and anything remotely a pot hole is worth doing anything to avoid. Women on the pack universally comment this the first time we go or through bumps that be non noteworthy on most bikes.

Overall handling? Well, of this is not a sport cruiser or bike. That said, the handles like a truck. No many people like and that from this of bike. many don’t.

If is of any concern to you, try something even in this class. For a Goldwing is like a crotch by comparison in handling. Haven’t a Harley bagger but the non bagger I’ve ridden handled sports cars compared to

Manufacturing quality? I’d say on a of 1-10 there is nothing than the aforementioned bags and that I’d rate a 7 and few parts of this bike rate above a 5.

Overall, I truly wouln’t one of these bikes for free I could sell it. It’s not a fun bike to ride and totally my passengers and myself out within an and even after a fairly break with another of riding we are truly just to get off of it.

It’s a shame, this is a looking bike, has a strong motor and seems like it be a bike you’re really riding far enough to make use of nice bags. but that hasn’t been my experience.

If thinking about buying one of which of course would buying a used one at this I’d say unless you can ride one a or two miles in one day stay away. If put that many miles on one in a day and you it, great. If you can’t take kind of ride remember I said if I got one for free. I wouldn’t be it much because it’s not pleasant.

If you change the pipes to something but within reason it would the bike from aweful to than great, by no way the equivalent of else you might compare it to. Full Review
