1st 100 Miles
Between work and sleep, I only had the chance to rack up about 100 miles on the new Cross Roads. I'm impressed with the 106 ci Freedom motor. Lots of torque, smooth acceleration, and plenty of reserve power. The only negative is wind buffeting at 80 mph is a bit more than my previous ride. And it may not be excessive - just a different air flow pattern.
This is my first bike with hard bags. I don't know how I did without hard bags all these years. I'll never go back to soft.
Planning to ride the Cross Roads to Palo Duro Canyon in 2 weeks. Nothing like hours in the saddle to really learn how well a bike handles those long highway miles.
