After 1 week & 350 miles: The stock handlebars absolutely SUCK bigtime! I am 6' tall with a normal arm reach but always seem to be reaching straight out, very uncomfortable. Ordered the SRVT pullback bars but the blasted things are on back order so I took delivery of the bike to put on the 500 mile break in. Glad I have the backrest to prop myself forward! Gas mileage seems awesome for such a big bike. I am running stage 1 exhaust & got 46mpg (actual) on the first tank. At around 75mph & up, I start noticing a buzz in the floorboards & the right mirror becomes distorted. Is this normal on a XC? After 1 hour in the saddle, started to get a sore butt. Anyone else having issues? The radio & I-pod set up is working awesome. I have excellent reception & the auto volume is super. I am finally getting used to the small foot brake peg, still would like to have a pedal instead. Transmission is smooth as can be & quiet in all gears. Motor is smooth & I am finding some torque now that I can rev her up some now that I have a couple hundred miles on her. I did find out that when riding 2 up, I can't use my backrest as it bothers the wife. I have the tour pack, don't know if she would have more room with the standard passenger backrest? Last thing: Is it just me being a newbie or does anyone else feel the bike is top heavy when riding 2 up? I found it hard to hold a line but think the pullback bars will give me much better control. My dealer suggested getting used to the bike without the tour pack. I have been riding all week 1 up w/o the trunk & love the way she handles now! Next up, I will be having a PC installed at the break in service along with a dyno tune. Coming off a Boulevard 109, I am anxious to get a little more torque on demand.
