    Well, I got it over with

    BTDT. I'd tell you the stories but it would pain me to relive them. I like to think I've learned something from them. We'll see.

    If I had a dollar for every time someone found out I had a motorcycle and asked..."A Harley?"..........

    New owner of a '16 ES and a long time member

    Yup. A few of us spent a week in the area. Indian River was our base, but we got a lot of decent riding in and around the UP.

    dry box luggage rack???

    I think I'm going this route too. I'm thinking Tusk panniers (the med ones) with the SW Motech quik racks. I like the idea of lockable hard storage on long trips.

    Will the SW Quik release racks fit any model (ES /non ES). Can they be made to fit with a little modding?

    are these problems cured in II generation of ST?

    Yeah, it’s almost as bad as designing a motor with the heads exposed and laying in front of your shins. SMH

    very bad design on kick stand

    My 2016 ES feels the same way. Ok on level ground, but I would like a few more degrees of lean. I'm guessing if I bump up the preload it won't be as much of an issue.

    Engine Braking

    After coming off an in-line four, it was a totally different engine characteristic. Rolling off the throttle in S mode felt like I threw out an anchor. I was only using my brakes to stop. I found I was using the throttle to control acceleration and most deceleration. Doable but I found it...

    Range?

    I'm pretty confident I can do 220ish at 70-75 mph (with no substantial headwind). But I don't tend to push it. I'm usually looking for gas when I hit 200.

    "New" "16 Super Ten

    I checked mine at 500 miles. About 3 were loose in the rear wheel (not rattle-y loose, just not tight to spec), 2 in front. Checked them at 1000 miles...1 was not up to spec in the rear. At 1500 miles, all were ok. Now I check them every oil change. No problems so far (16K).

    Buying a new 2018

    Exactly what I use mine for. My first additions were crashbars, skidplate (oem) and a fender extender. I didn't need the most robust of crash stuff and the oem skidplate is really a gravel guard, but it works for my needs.
