I rode a Roastmaster a couple months ago at a demo ride. It was smooth and shifts great. Handling was good, but I think my XR handles a little better. Maybe that's because of the weight difference. Great fit and finish on the Roadmaster. It just roasted the insides of my thighs. Although, it being a demo and the bike had been ridden all day and the course was not at highway speeds that would cool it down, it was probably hotter than normal riding. The temp at the time was about 90 degrees also. Overall a very nice motorcycle. I also have become spoiled by the roomy feeling on the XR and now feel a little cramped on HD's and the Indians feel more closed in too. I like that I can move my feet around on the Victory's, it makes long trips easier for me.
