Picked this up over the weekend to use back and forth to work and throw a set of bags on and head out for a day or more .....
Second year was a fantastic sport tourer (problem with second gear on first year)
If I was doing a lot of miles I would have one in a heartbeat (or the 1200)
Fastest I've ever been on a bike was a modified FJ1100 (around 165)
Friend of mine had one and managed to get 80mpg out of it on runs (never went over 80mph though)
He was also getting about 12,000 miles from rear tyre
Still needed tyre every 6~8 weeks, he did a LOT of miles
