This is my Mean Streak. I moved up from a Honda Shadow Ace 750. Two weeks before we were heading to California for our first big motorcycle trip my wife told me I needed a bigger bike, God bless her. She told me one thing, make sure it's the bike you *really* want. I had a short list of Harley V-Rod, Victory Kingpin, and the Mean Streak. I rode them all but the Mean Streak was the bike that did it. I managed to put 1500kms on before the trip, got it in for it's first service and the rest is history, 37,000kms later I'm still loving the bike.
