i had one as a courtesy bike for 2 days while my varadero was being serviced, found it more plasticky than im used to but a good solid ride, i wouldnt say no. can you get bigger tanks for it yet?
I don't want to bring this great thread too much "off-topic" but I would like to hear you opinions on the 1000 Varadero.
I had been using my brothers year 2000 Africa Twin, (XVR750) for about a year, but wasn't that really impressed with it.
Sure it was good, but 80% or so of my ride was 2-up, on tarmac, good quality.
Then just now and then I would very carefully be on the gravel.
Where I felt let down with the AT was the cruising speed on the longer tarmac stretches.
I felt the AT a little underpowered, but still rather heavy.
Please tell me your feelings on the Varadero.
You may wish to start a new thread, and let this one get back on track.
