When i was a kid we lived in Overland, Mo and then out to Winfield,Mo about 45 minutes away from St.Louis. I went back up to Winfield in 2010 and went and checked out Lock-N-Dam #25 there...

What year is your 1600 and how is the maintenance? Any issues?

Itís a 2013 GTL. Maintenance to me is about the same as any other bike except for valve check. Problems....a couple of minor things. Itís the best large sportour out there. All day comfort.The motor sure has some grunt .😉

Maybe one day, I like the 1600. I have a 17 V1k and a 17 Connie. 3 bikes is a stretch. I would have to get rid of one or both.

The 18ís are out, but no changes. The color scheme is from 2015. I wouldnít be surprised if they were left overs.
