Couper -- That is one fine looking 15 year old scooter. Looks like one fun ride.

Nice scooter there Coup. We parted with our 02 RSV a few years ago after my heart issues. We had it a long time and did a lot of long distances on it. It had a stack of km's on it and still ran like it was new. Those things will go forever. Enjoy!

It rides nice Old Iron. I had a 86 Gold Wing Aspencade for 20 years before I bought this. That bike was nimble, handled well, was comfortable and wheelied with the best of them, but I wanted something with a little "younger" look. Must of been mid life crisis.

When I started test driving bikes there was nothing that felt like that wing.
Everything I test rode had to be very close shifted....3 gears from here to the corner. That wing would go up past 50 in 1st gear. This was the only ride I sorta liked. It was very top heavy and the front tire was almost as wide as the rear. Once I lowered it and went down a size on the front tire she handled well.

It's much better now and I'm used to it.....
