Well I've done nearly 500 miles on my new to me XL700 in my weeks ownership.
Got a 2010, one previous owner, 10k miles bike with full Honda service history. (PO worked at the Honda dealership where it came from).
I've done two hours in the saddle with no complaints.
I was a bit concerned that there wasn't going to be enough power at the top end due to my previous bike being the BMW GS800 2015, but I'm happy to report there's plenty of oomph.
My handlebars don't start to tank slap if you let go of the bars like some people have experienced.
What I would say is that I'm always looking for another gear when I'm in top.
Does anyone know if you can retro fit a gear indicator, just a nice to have item.
What's the best centre stand to fit and does anyone have one for sale.
Also any crash bars for sale.
Think this bike will be in my ownership for plenty of years to come.
Ticks a lot of boxes.

welcome,

its definitely a comfy bike for time in the saddle however im also looking for that 6th gear a lot.

mine definitely does the tank slapper motion! ive learned to accept it

not got much help to your queries but how do you find the comparison between this and the GS800 power wise - why did you change?
