Got the bike out today and was able to stretch it's legs a bit - 170 miles this morning, mostly interstate and back desert highway.
Still getting used the weight around the garage and low speed maneuvers - have been wishing the bike was about 100 lbs lighter, but today on the highway cruising at 80-85mph, could see how the weight is very beneficial, especially on our windy western highways (had some pretty strong gusts today).
LOVE the cruise control, this is the first bike I've ever had real cruise control on (in the 80's and 90's I had those attachments that would lock your throttle setting in place, and basically keep you from getting tired pulling against the throttle spring resistance), and it was GREAT. Found myself using it MOST of the ride except when in traffic. While the bike is very smooth, there were enough vibrations that the pinky and ring finger on my right hand were tingling/going to sleep towards the end of my ride. Perhaps thicker gloves, or foam grips?
