Jerry, I'll take the  Hunnan honey - you can keep the Beemer..
It was a rental thank God..
This is what I mailed to Rob
   In short I didn't like much about it. I liked the adjustable windshield 
and the seat was
comfy and computer readout was neat, lockable hard luggage was nice but that
was it.
   The bike with luggage was too top heavy for me, even on the sport setting
the front wheel seemed light and never seemed connected to the road,  the
seat height was too tall and it made a perfect sail in cross winds.
 I don't like the boxer engine - I got used to the vibes, but it just 
doesn't have the snap of the GPZ.
The throttle and front brake was not progressive. The mirrors don't allow 
you to see directly behind you. Want me to go on?
    For a bigger rider I'm sure it's a different story, but I was glad to 
back to the Geepster..
