congrats on the new bike. You'll love it.Yes, honestly I do. Now the guys on the Harley forum would never believe me I know. I did have to get over the "name" syndrome, but it does handle better, does not wiegh as much, feels more "nimble". Plus I have always liked Kawi's. I do miss the sound, and the 900 gets blown around more, but it is close. I DONT miss the payments!! As for the arguments from the harley riders as to all the plastic, well, it aint gonna rust either. Now dont get me wrong, I will get another softail someday, but this little bike may just stay in the stable too.
