Just recently bought a pristine '08 in Pearl. Coming from a Kawasaki Concours 1000, all I can say is wow! What a smooth ride. The torque is amazing. Installed a new mp3 player in lieu of the CD changer courtesy of BikeMP3 and what an even better ride it is now with good music at hand in stead of garbage land based radio. Good to be here and thanks for the great info!
