How much milage have you racked up? and how is the bike holding up? Any tips on dealing with the vibration on the throttle handle?
About 17,000 in 5 months. Bike has been flawless in very cold and hot weather so far. Always starts right up and runs great. And that's spending most time in parking lots, not garaged.
For throttle handle, don't take off your bar weights to put on hand guards. I left my on even with the hand guards I bought, but there is a trick to that.
I added tennis racket wrap and wrapped it around both grips (bought two). Makes the grip a bit larger but more comfortable with giving very good feel. Looks good too.
Put on a Vista throttle lock so I could stretch my right arm just briefly sometimes. Got the one that clamps around the grip. Easy to put on and works very good. Wait, I did have to file it here and there, come to think of it. Even with your hand still on the throttle, open and close your hands from time to time. Position yourself so you are not pressing on your hands so much when you ride. Keep your arms and elbows relaxed on the hwy.
No matter what, I still get stiff. It is a matter of not making it painful so that you really WANT to get off the bike. Or that you can't ride the next day because you are so sore.
Hope that helps even though I'm no expert at all. My only teacher is many long hours in the saddle in all kinds of weather. Still, I have read a lot of books on riding, safety and distance riding. You won't catch me at an Iron Butt rally though.
