I recently purchased my first bike. I bought a CF Moto (QLink) Legacy primarily to commute 20 miles to my shop in Midland, MI. Tonight, while doing some surfing I stumbled upon an RE link and immediately fell in love with the design of the Classic. In fact I sent the link to my brother soon after. I've always had a soft spot for the vintage bikes. I typically take a scenic route along a river most of the way to the shop. The remaining 10 minutes is split at the end of a busy state highway (speeds average 65) and finally on city streets. While I expect the bike to perform well in this routine, at least, will it also hold up to longer rides with my friends with bigger bikes on the freeway (i.e.Victory 8-Ball and bikes in the 1600 cc range)? Cruising speeds at 70 on I-75 from Bay City to Alpena, Tawas and Mackinac wouldn't be out of the question. Those destinations are an hour and a half to three and a half hours from home...maybe four. I know that a 70mph cruising speed would be fine with them but, can this bike handle that type of punishment? I'd love to know more about any rider's experiences that deal with this situation. Advice from anyone that owns this bike would be greatly appreciated. I love my Legacy for the looks, comfort and gas mileage but I think I found the bike that suits my personality. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and found a dealer within an hour from home, near Mt. Pleasant, in Reese which is in the Tri-City area near Saginaw.. I can't wait to see this bike in person or believe I just found a true obsession of this nature!
I'm in the Grand Rapids area, and my Bullet goes as long as I need it to on any of the two-lanes. Expecially when commuting, I have more fun at 45 - 60 on the two lanes and I escape the daily slowdowns on the expressway. Wouldn't think of taking it out on the superslab - the bike is light and I'm sorta "lean" (six-foot, 145lbs) and the airblast from a VW at 75mph would likely blow me into the ditch...Mike and Stumpy in Michigan
