Go over to ADVrider to the "beasts" forum and look for Uly posts. lots of info there on this bike.
It's actually a great bike but does take getting used to. Many are put off but don't give it a chance. Much like a Guzzi and even some Ducati's, you have to ride the Uly a bit different.
Its quite reliable, just keep the mud out of the cooling fins in Alaska.
I've tested a couple Uly's and really liked them both. If you are over about
5'9" then you should have no problem....the bike is tall but has a different low seat.
