    Nice, been looking at a 520 myself. Now if the weather was warmer I would buy it tomorrow, load up my tent and head off.

    I have a 2014 520. Great bike for touring. I find it a bit heavy for a daily rider, but it is all I have for a road bike, and that's not going to change any time soon. Have fun!
