    Just picked up a 2015 beauty and rode her home for 200 miles.

    I am speechless - what an amazing machine!

    Love it!

    Congratulations!  I think you will find that it is a proven long distance tourer.  The only limit I found was the seat.  $700 later the seat is more comfortable than my recliner in the living room.

    Happy riding  :002:

    Thank you, Xsv.

    The seat was, by far, more comfortable than any other seat I've tried before, so I think I'm good for now.

    I did, however, find the screen to be too short for me, even when fully up - the noise and buffeting were very considerable  :087:

    I'll have to look at options to remedy that...

    Welcome to the group, NB101! 

    Like you, I've found the stock seat very comfortable, be it 20 miles or nearly a thousand miles.  It seems to continue to get better with the miles - hopefully you'll experience the same. :001:
