Almost a new guy
Hello all, I am on the brink of becoming an owner of a '08 with 35K miles. I am uncertain because there is an awful lot of deferred maintenance. The current owner couldn't tell me how old is the battery, oil (!), chain, or if any scheduled service has been done. It needs tires. He's only owned it for the last 10K. On the plus side, it is loaded: Corbin saddle, fog lights, lowered (it is so very comfortable), Givi bags and topbox, adjustable levers, skid plate, highway pegs, etc...
The big mystery to me is there is a lot of wind coming up from under the nose up past the gas tank directly to my chin. That can't be right, can it? It blows hard at 55 mph+
However, one way or another I will most likely join the owners society since these are a blast to ride.
