Heavy as sport-tourers go. IMO 100lbs heavier than it needs to be.

2003 Triumph Trophy 1200
2009 BMW F650GS (wife's)

Test rides are fun, let us know how you make out. In Calgary (Canada) the dealers really don't like to do test rides, I'm not sure why...you would think they would want people to try before you buy.

Wifey did not like the rear seating on the bikes. She saw a beautiful 2010 black Goldwing, sat on it and the rest was history. What's a guy to do? hehehe
