Question What do you reckon

I am new to this forum, but after years riding a YZF, DL650 I am looking at a 2005 xvz1300tf.
Only problem is I'll be buggered if I can find any decent reviews. Any help here would be great. They are a fantastic looking bike, only rivaled by the Vulcan voyager.
Let me know what you think.

I sat on one a few years ago in the showroom and I thought it to be very comfortable and it felt surprisingly light. But I've always struggled with going the watercooled route. But had I overcome that struggle I would have had a hard time deciding between that and any of the Honda GL's. A GL probably would have won out just because of the rock solid history for dependability.

Howdy. Those are a lot of letters. I would ask for people's opinion in the v star thread. You're more likely to get 1300 owners to respond
