I tend to cruise on the highway at 75-85. Plus I want to have FUN! Thanks for all the replies so far
990, I was where you are about 6 months ago. My consensus was that people wanted way too much for their used bike that I went and got a new one. Get an R!!!! I didn't and luckily I found a guy who wants to swap suspension. There's my 2 cents
