I'll save all the mushy details, but I was able to take the T-Bird on a winding and hilly jaunt through SW Iowa (Marne-Harlan-Denison-Mapleton-SiouxCity) while on my back to Sioux Falls, SD, and I have to say that compared to the Kawa Vulcan 900 Classic LT I traded in there absolutely no comparison. Wow! What a ride!

First on the list of "upgrades" is going to be foot boards, then maybe a quick-detachable mid-sized wind shield. I'm going to keep this bike saddle bag free, and use a cargo net and backpack combo if I need to haul anything. The quick detach sissy bar and luggage rack is nice! being to take that on/off in a matter of seconds is such a blessing.

I've already got on order the long haul seat and rider back rest. The sooner that gets here the better.
