    I have a 95 krs. I personally think it's possibly the best sport touring option in the line up. As with all bikes it has some shortfalls, but I absolutely love mine.
    Some things you might want to address....
    Riding position is fairly aggressive. I added heli bars. Some folks fit the lt bars. Personally, I think this is a must do (many will disagree, my back does not).
    The stock seat is brutal, lots of good Corbins come available on here or eBay. They are still available new as well.
    Engine heat is as bad as advertised. A few mods can help some but it's really just something you have to live with.
    Oh and the 6th gear mod is something you should do right away!!
