My experience is indeed with an 01 model and at one point it did have the "surging" problem, but I believe it was eventually fixed by one of the dealers (the bike belonged to my friend Susan) According to what I remember she was told to use Premium and I'm trying to remember if i also read it in her owners manual

I will agree it'll easily travel along all day at it's upper limit while fully loaded and it can even do 800 mile days and yes with a passenger (as Tedder asked). I never found it to be all that buzzy, but others are free to disagree
