    Disclaimer: This is my first motorcycle, i.e. I don't know what I don't know about what's good bad and ugly about motorcycles. Ahh, ignorance is bliss ...<br /><br />IMO this bike was very easy to ride from day one and I can't imagine a better starting bike for me (YMMV -- I'm six feet tall and 200 lbs). I don't consider myself to be a natural at anything so the ease with which I took to riding this bike says more about the forgiving nature of the bike than the rider.<br /><br />The 650 v-twin seems smooth and has always delivered the power I've needed whether on the highway or my limited dirt experience and when loaded with camping gear.<br /><br />Once offroad or taking my daughters two-up on the bike I definitely notice the stock factory suspension is being pushed. I hope to remedy this in the near future.<br /><br />All in all, based on my limited riding experience and current needs, I'm very pleased with this bike. It's price point allows me to add and upgrade only what I want to add or upgrade.<br /><br />Farkles: Barkbusters Storm handguards, Givi 52L Trekker Case, OEM side cases, OEM center stand, Weld86 skid plate <br /><br />
