This is a great touring bike. It is fast, comfortable and able to handle fairly heavy loads. It is fully triangulated and the frame absorbs many of the bumps. The bike looks good, and rides well. I would buy another.
It's major weakness is hills. With the slight tiller steering, slow speeds will find you "walking" back and forth up the hill. Downhills are a flat out blast. With a fairing the bike can easily hit 50+ down the hills in this area. At speed the bike is stable and predictable.
In slow traffic the bike displays the same behaviour as uphills.
