All work done by previouse owner, all I've done so far was take off passenger arms that have pegs on them as well as dual headlights on. Since usually it's either low beam or high beam on alone

Torque up the a-hole very usable torque too early as 1500 rpm lol, I'm trying to be mature about it, and take it easy :)

+1, woulda scarred the crap out of me if that was my first bike. Heavy too!, balancing a bike is intimidating for a new rider. Have fun with it!

been riding it a little more lately and not too bad, im a pretty heavy guy at 235 lbs so bike doesnt feel that heavy. i think dry weight is 395 lbs.

riding at 55 mph not bad but those 5 extra mph when your doing 60 or 60+ boy is that wind kicking your butt, havent ridden anything with a windscreen so dont know how much they do for you. but wow.
