I have had my bike for about 17 months and have over 10,000 miles. I was at the rally in Erwin for the weekend. I love my bike. It is heavy going slow and it takes some adjustment. But I would not trade it for any other bike. We have 3 lady Rune riders in Jacksonville. Have not seen them for a while as I have been traveling on business a lot. Welcome to the club and be safe.
I have to tell you..This is one awesome machine and was such a neat thing to see so many in one place in Erwin...But as impressive as this bike looks...It REALLY looks impressive with a woman at the controls.... I am at a stop off in Appleton,WI and will be home (UP of Mich) on Thursday...I will share a few of my thoughts regarding the rally when I get home...Hope all made it home safely and special thoughts for the fellow who didn't make it to the rally because of the accident last Thursday (Chuck I believe)... So nice to meet y'all...
Hi. I would like to know if any of you ladies have a hard time backing the Rune up. I have an 1800 Gold Wing (with reverse) and an 1800 VTX. So I am used to heavy bikes. But, I have to be careful how I park the VTX, because of it's weight. I want to sell it and buy the Rune. But I am worried about the weight.
Also, women tend to carry more stuff than men. How are you ladies packing extra clothes, your purse, etc?
The bike is heavy and I am very careful about where I park. My bike came with a reverse! His name is Pete!!! Just kidding. I really pay attention to incline and am lucky that I have never been stranded because I could not back it up. As far as my stuff, I have a custom Corbin Seat that allows me to carry a small bag that carries my rain suit and some other things. I also have a bad by my windshield for glasses, sunscreen, hair stuff, and lipstick. Just buy the bike! You won't be sorry.
