finally got it. only 9k miles on her. SHE IS FAST, loved how she can go from 75 to 100 with ease. cruised at 80-85 with no problems at about 4k RPM. coming from a Shadow 1100 that was slow as hell after hitting 75. unlike the Shadow this thing is EASY as hell to maneuver, it's a completely different animal. yes it would be nice to cruise at 3k rpm at 85 but seems the engine has no problems handling 4k even near 5k RPMs when I pushed her a bit. LOVE HER. now the fun begins, I need tires , repair manual & link to who has decent prices.
