    Saw one of these yesterday, and while it is a nice bike, I'll stick with my Suzi DR650SE dual sport/Enduro thumper for my hunt-scouting bike. It cost 1/5th what the H-D is, and where I go is ROUGH. We've gone down a few times together - it & I bear the scars, but I can get it back up when dropped and I can stand to see it taped & wired where I've had to make rapid repairs. Which reminds me, I need new tires...and after paying over $300 for my Heritage's rear tire, I expect a Pan-Am's tire wouldn't be all that cheap, either, as compared to the Suzuki.

    It's a tall bike, as an adventure bike should be, 150 HP is good, it's an HD so it's not cheap for sure but it's not crazy priced either...

    Oh yeah it's got a tall seat alright, sat on one at EOHD, the seat makes Cobin seats feel like a padded barcolounger.. Or maybe Chrysler front seats from a 78 Newport Custom....

    I love the colors, but blue and white are my favorites, local stealer had it listed at "Mid $40's" for a $29K bike. They have two locations and sold one, some people are nuts.

    I'm gonna trade my RG in on a Black Street glide, paint the fairing outside and bags white, put a cop seat on it and ride it to Daytona telling everyone it's a pre-production 2022 custom HD paint..... Sell it for $45K and pocket some coin LOL

    Even with my size it's a tall seat, like the similar BMW adventures etc, but they need ground clearance. I' d just like it for the 150 hp..... and because it will piss off the purists from it's looks, and nobody in the group I ride with would buy it LOL
