How tall are you? I'm 6'4" and put taller handlebars on mine to ride more comfortably. So I lied, the moto is not "as it came off the line in 76" like I said previously. Gas range is also a concern, thinking about changing up the gears to get better range, and take a spare gas can. Current conservative riding gets me 170-200 miles on one tank.

I get this all the time too, have met some very interesting people.
