Yes this bike is a tourer and makes me just want to sit back cruise. I went for an errand for hour and decided to extend the trip. Went from Charlotte, NC to Marion, NC to Little Switzerland, NC. Route 80 and 226A are great roads to get a little stress out and to use the full range of the tire tread. Wish I had more time to explore and to sit back a relax but I will take what I can get. Looking forward to more of these impromptu adventures.
