3) Best bike I've ever owned. Build quality is fantastic.
4) I'm getting about 150-160 miles per tank (being heavy handed).
5) My experience has been awesome, (albeit I have an awesome dealer doing service). I'm disappointed with myself in not trying an MV much sooner in life.
I've run as far as 350 miles in one sitting and had no issues with comfort. Fly down here and road test one and have it shipped back.
