Godspeed Kevin.

Word is the US launch has been moved to a high school soccer field in Omaha. The on-road routes are being coned off at a nearby Walmart.

I guess if get to go to the national rally next year the demo fleet ride will be a bit more sedate.

Sounds ok except for:

"The engine is a little less tractor-like in slow off road situations......it is a little less friendly when lugging through a tricky section of dirt"

That lugging ability of my existing GS comes in handy in the tight going.

Leave it to an inmate to read a positive review and point out the one negative thing said.

Lots of room on this bike if you're 6'7.
What if I am 6'5 and over 300#? :)
