i just joined after reading some posts and thought this to be a useful site.
i live in saratoga county and purchased my 09 used with only 3400 miles. looks brand spanking new. i got it pretty cheap, at least all the upfront depreciation is gone.
i like the bike but i have some problems with the ergonomics (riding posture) that need to be addressed. i am 6 foot with 34+ inseam and longer arms than a standard shirt would fit. the seating posture has me sliding forward(really annoying) and the seat is most uncomfortable. those 2 will be dealt with first. i also find the handle bars to feel narrow and the mirrors don't let you see directly behind me. one other thing that bugs me is a fuel guage that is not even close. i get about 80 miles and i am showing a half tank, then when i get close to 100 miles i am down to one bar remaining. if i get about 50 mpg, that is way off. i will just have to set one of my trip meters to measure my gas.
what i like is the handling and the feel. for the price of this machine new, it is definitely a great all around bike. my primary use is to commute and save wear and tear on my car.
my other bikes are 2005 bmw r1200gs and a trail bike and quad for off road fun.
i do have a quick question.
where is the website for motowerks accessories?
