Just as the others said before me, it really isn't that bad of a choice when on the highway. The Vibrations with aluminium bars is very low, and with the rubber damping in the foot-pegs your good to go (hehe, that rhythms).
I've never ridden any other type of bike, other then a dual sport a few dual sports (KLR, XR, and DR's). Th KLR actually felt sluggish, almost like it wasn't at its full potential. The DR feels good, and with a few mods, its pretty well off on the highway.
