Review Summary: 

Just bought this bike a week ago, and have put on about 300 miles since picking it up. Love the power and the stability. Had it out on the highway at speeds up to 85 MPH in a crosswind, and it handled beautifully. Easy to handle at all speeds, once you get used to the size of the bike. Lots of power - the torque is unreal. Back off the throttle and you don't really have to touch the brakes to slow down. (be careful, though, as you may be in danger of not communicating your intentions by not activating the brake lights) my only quibble, is that the stock touring windshield is WAY too low for highway cruising. Will have to order a new one before making any long trips. The stock seat has had a custom backrest added for improved back support, but the seat seems very comfortable even without the backrest.
