I'm more comfortable with myself now than I've ever been, and I am so thankful that I was able to leave the United States excited and ready for all of the adventures to come.

The seating is comfortable and the give such a smooth ride. The top speed was about 300 kph, but it did not feel like we were going that fast and the scenery did not whip past.
