    Handling

    Thanks for the Vmax/Venture comparisons.In Harley world there's not such a big difference in low speed handling between an Electraglide & a Dyna. The Vmax is a fair bit lighter than my Dyna,so shouldn't be a problem. I'm going to start figureing out the logistics of selling the Dyna,& then...

    2 up(as in passenger)suitability

    Guys,really appreciate all the replies.The 250 miles a day is not touring,just daily rides from & back to base with no other purpose than the ride,so stopping every 120miles or so for fuel is no big deal & it gives the old bones a rest.Maybe I should explain how I come to be looking at a V-Max(I...

    2 up(as in passenger)suitability

    Hi,first post,so be kind.Would a V-Max,last of the Ist Gen,make a decent bike for 2 up riding (nearly all the time),average 250miles a day. Morgan.
