Thanks, guys! I absolutely LOVE this bike! I thought I loved my old vfr, but this bike is amazing and does exactly what its meant to do...accelerate, brake, turn, repeat...And you should definitely make a trip down this way...we have some beautiful roads to ride here. They actually make motorcycle maps just for those occasions. There are maps for northern and central Arkansas, and thru west central Oklahoma that truly highlight some of the best scenic routes, and even offer some twisty maps for the more advanced riders.
