Big, comfortable, fast as you could ever need, loads of carrying capacity, economical for such a big machine and handling way better than you might expect of a 'soft tourer'. I've ground down the hero blobs on both sides and I'm no knee down racer by a long way, it just leans over with a confidence inspiring stability. A bit of a weave around tghe steering head at 90-100mph, but nothing too disconcerting, and strangly enough not every time. Brilliant engine, ABS and electric screen set off the whole package nicely. If you're after a top tourer to take just you or you and the missus vast distances in comfort and have some fun when the road gets twisty, try the Pan for size. Strengths: Engine, comfort, handling, luggage capacity, tank range. Weaknesses: Unattractive instrument binnacle, lacks a bit of character.
