from Fresno, CA. I use to have an 85 Honda Sabre 1100 and boy the power on that ride was unbelievable.
I got a few hundred miles out of my V65 Magna before blowing the head gasket. Right now it's half torn down in my buddy's garage, waiting for both of us to have a chance between my 3 jobs and his numerous jobs to get together and finish the project. We half jokingly call that bike the TRON light cycle, because that's pretty much how it goes.
But the name that it got stuck with is "Death Wish" (because you have to have one to ride that beast)
But I'm liking the RS
quite a lot so far. No, it's not going to be winning any races. But it's scaled so much better for my ogrish figure and I suspect those 1,000+ mile trips are going to be so much more comfortable on this than on the smaller bikes I've been riding. Looking forward to a Key West run in the Spring, so we'll see.
Thanks for the welcomes, everyone.
