The warrior sucks, it can barely get out of it's own way, it handles like it's on pogo sticks and in 20 minutes of riding, you want to get a lifetime membership to the chiropractors.
Just thought I'd throw in something you'd never expect to see on a site specifically for warrior enthusiasts.
The bike is fine, the power at low end is exhilarating, it handles well enough to have a good time, with a few modifications, my wife and I do 4 to 8k trips every single year on it.
4 to 8K trips is a lot. Just out of curiosity, how many miles can you get out of these bikes? I have historically sold off my sportbikes after hitting around 20K. I assume the life span on the Warrior is longer. How many miles can I expect if I take good care of her?
