Flycatcher--so you've been happy with your Corbin? I'm thinking of upgrading to some kind of custom seat.
Keith--I'm 6'2"; I took a trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway on my 919 about 3 years ago (from Chicago, then to Shandandoah, VA, then to the Smokey Mountains, and back to Chicago). I had a great time. You can put a windscreen on it, and set it up with Givi cases for hauling plenty of stuff. There are plenty of threads on here about that. Go for it!
