I finally decided to trade in my 500. The 500 is a great bike, but small. ... but I am now in shock!!! After riding my new 1500 for 40 miles yesterday, I now know what heaven feels like. I am utterly amazed and at a loss for words. Was slightly apprehensive goin to such a big bike, since I am 5'9 130 lbs, but it is easier to ride than my 500 was. Just wanted to share my joy, and ask opinions on windshields and WHY u like a particular one. It's gonna be my first buy, since I do alot of hiway miles. Another thought. Which break-in do you guys believe in, easy or hard? Also, nice to meet all of you !!!
