Picked the bike up this morning. It was exactly like the owner described.minty, mint orange 07 with 1365 miles. Its nice to know there are stilll honest people out there. Now im 180 miles into my trip back with 320 to go. Taking breaks every 60-80 miles.
So far im really enjoying the bike. The ergonomics seem to be pretty spot on for a 6ft person. I thought my shoulders would hurt already, but not a hint of pain so far. I am especially loving the stability that the weight and wide the rear tire provide on the highway. Its great, cruusing at 70mph is absolute cakewalk, that wasnt so with my m50.
Now heres one thing that hurts, and u guessed it: my butt! This seat is definitely not meant for trips longer than 50 miles. And honestly, so far, thats my inly complaint.
I guess one thing to keep in mind is that my frame of reference is a suzuki m50 blvd. The hammer feels like a pimped out cadillac compared to the m50. So for me this bike so far met, and in terms of ergonomics has exceeded my expectations. :-)
Gtg, long trip still ahead, curious to find out what else will start to hurt.
