Well, i am trading my 1985 limited edition wing for a yamaha 550 this week. The wing was getting too heavy for me and my days of all day trips are over. I just needed a lighter bike that i could scoot around town with and maybe make half day trips. I owned a virago 750 years ago and liked the way it cornered and the low center of gravity. I think i am going to be more comfortable with this bike seeing i can pick it up by myself. Thanks for all your information and help on this site. i will drop back in once and awhile to see how things are going.
