I own an 088 model. Have put 25000klm on her in 2 years.We have terrible roads here in NZ lots of pot holes corners etc. The bike handles predictably but doesnt like to be pushed in corners. The pipes need rising for ground clearance and suspension needs tweeking. I have se chip and air cleaner which lets the bike breathe. Will be adding progressive springs front and rear with fork emulator. As a cruiser I love her to bits reliable and solid feel.I would recommend this bike to anyone who wants a cruiser.Ride on.
I love hd bt my financial cndtn is not too good is there any option for me
