Congratulations! I don't think you'd want anything smaller to travel on, but I've said many times that I wouldn't hesitate to run cross-country on an EX-500, and I mean it. It'll cruise an interstate all day at 85+ and still has passing power when needed. Smooth at highway speeds, comfortable seat, and nice bar placement for the long hauls. Totally adequate bike.

Indeed it's quite a runner, after the gear change to a 15 tooth the thing will go 92
easy on the freeway. but it's to lite for that
ride safe.
