I've had the bike now for about 3 weeks, this is the first serious ride out in the Hill Country.
The V rode great. I had less problems with the wind that I thought I would have with a 450 lb bike.
The Givi windshield is perfect for me, I get no buffeting on the helmet, very quiet ride.
The Corbin saddle is great, glad the previous owner got it! I've never ridden on a stock V seat, but I've sure read some horror stories.
The stock tires, yeah, aren't the best, they did not like the tar snakes in the curves, very slippery. I will want some dual sport type tires when the time comes.
The bike is so light and nimble coming from my 1100-1300cc cruisers, especially the one with the 21" front wheel, you have to wrestle that one around a 70mph curve. This V bike just guides itself around a 70 mph curve, even 80mph and its so controllable.
Added 20mph to posted curve speed limits, 35mp curve was a 55mph, 65mph curve was a 85mph curve, no problems, rock solid.
A great day, discovered that I made a fantastic choice with the V bike. It's just what I have been looking for.
