I also agree...great lite weight tourer. I recently came back from 2400 miles through Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. The airhawk makes a big difference, once you get the amount of air dialed in.

A little bit of road rash
I put a set of aluminum side cases and a Seat Concepts seat on mine - then took it on a 1,600 mile ride.
I agree - it makes a great lightweight touring bike.
I'm not thrilled with the Seat Concepts. It's a bit firm, and has harsher edges. I sat on a stock seat at the dealer this week, and it was so soft, in comparison.
But, I remember why I purchased an aftermarket seat in the first place. It didn't hold up well. I think I'm gonna drop a nut on a better seat over the winter, but I don't want to blow $500 without knowing what it feels like.
Anyone in the Tri State area have other seats I can sit on and feel in the flesh?
Are there any seat cushions that mesh well with this bike?
All in all, throw some bags on this bike, and the riding position and maneuverability make this bike really wonderful for long rides.
