'97 XX - 25 Year Anniversary

Hello All. Long time member, been absent a while though. I thought I'd post a little something to show off my 25 year XX anniversary ! I bought this '97 model brand new in May of '98. It has been an incredible machine. At a little over 100K miles, it's barely had any issues at all, and never anything serious. It has aged far better than I have :)

There have been no mechanical mods to it, just comfort and convenience add-ons.

I toyed with the idea of selling it in 2016, but couldn't go thru with it, I'm so glad I kept it. Having kids has slowed down the odometer quite a bit, but it still slowly accumulates more miles.

What a brilliant motorcycle! It still turns heads everywhere it goes.

That's a great story and glad you posted, It says a lot about a bike that someone will keep it for twenty-five years; that's an endorsement to say the least. And glad to hear [again] the high miles and low overall maintenance cost. I like the Panniers. I got thinking about these bikes late last year and bought this 03, last thing I needed but I think these bikes are perfect.
Wondering if I might have the same aftermarket windshield as your's, mine's got a sticker says "zero gravity". I've only ridden it once, home slow in heavy rain where I bought it from four months ago, wondering how you like it over the stock windshield, it looks like it might lift the air over a not too tucked down position.
