I am the proud owner of a 2014. Bought it last May with 1800 miles on it. Was able to take a month off from work this past July and rode cross country to California and back. Not one issue! This bikes a beast!
Exactly. I think you are probably the best judge as to whether or not you're up to a cross country ride. Best advice I ever got was to never take the advice of someone who hasn't done the thing they're advising you to do (or not do as is the case). I like the motto of the Far Riders here in Oz: "It's just a road." No matter how big the trip seems it's really just riding down this section of road...then that one....then the next one .... ie any big trip is really just lots of little ones strung togetherNo she doesn't like motorcycle's...
