Took a 250 mi trip today to Lake Okeechobee, Arcadia, and back to Pine Is., FL. Landscape is flat as a pancake and roads straight as an arrow with a few sweepers mixed in. This gives me a total of 1500 mi in the first month. take off power and roll on power are great. The engine runs as smooth as a sewing machine. I can't call this a suitable touring bike yet. The sorry excuse for a windshield is terrible. I rode for about 15 mi through love bugs that fly in mating pairs. They are smaller that a house fly, but when they hit something going 60, they spat into an area about 10 times their size. The entire front of the bike was covered in a couple hundred dead bugs. My riding jacket, sun glasses, and helmet were splattered. What a mess. The taller windshield should solve the problem. Hope it's available soon. But for now, I really like riding the bike except for the wind issue.
