Verdicts in, I like this mid-sized Bike. Been riding since the early seventies and finally worked my way up to a 08 Goldwing/Nav that saw many great miles. I'm in my early sixties and only 5'7" and it seemed the older I get the bigger the wing became at 900 lbs not including my wife and all of her stuff. Still like to ride though and started looking. At just over 600lbs and only a 26.5" seat height this touring model lets me go to places I would not take the Wing. It handles the highway well and handles two up good for weekend trips. Just an opinion from a old rider.
