    I think for the needs you describe, it would fit the bill for a couple day trip or longer, I'd get the trunk though.

    The economy on my '13 was in the mid or even lower 40s until the first service for some odd reason, after that it is up to what you were experiencing, about 50.

    You think that is bad, try a transverse 4 or 6 cylinder such as my prior K1200GT, service prices will absolutely make you question either your own or your dealers sanity. Hundreds and hundreds.

    I saw something online where someone put some retro-reflective material behind the lens so it at least made a decent reflector; as it sits from the factory there isn't any reflectivity to it at all....

    Yeah, I've heard of those too, if the bike I have now hangs around I might think of doing that, IIRC it's weights or springs or something like that which a modification to the CVT.
