Glad to hear a real customer with real experience in the saddle. Looks great!

Very nice Kai. I know it is the same powerplant as your old Stratoliner but how does it compare to it? Heated backrest???

Same size engine, but this is the next generation of it.
Several things have changed & most parts are not interchangeable between the 'Liners and the new Venture powerplant.

On a related note, I wonder if the rear cylinder from a new Venture could be swapped onto a Liner case to put the exhaust output on the left side.
Just have to wait until someone tries it I guess, or at least sees both of them apart next to each other - which is unlikely.

Anyone know how expensive insurance is on it? I know that everyone will be a little bit different but curious what it runs.
