ease up on the right wrist twist! 50mpg is not hard to get on a C50.

Here's my review...

Good bike, good fuel mileage, good seat, go ride. End of review.

Is the 03 seat different? I found it intolerable.

Don't know about the '03 seat but the '11 seat is just fine for me. I could go 4 miles or 400 plus miles. Seat is still comfortable. I'm 230lbs 5' 9" and would not ride it if my a.s.s. did not agree.

I found the '03 seat just fine. I guess I have enough personal padding in the right place. I bought the Mustang so the wife would have a softer ride. Now I more that just fine

I rarely go over 60. Mid forties are the best I get.
