Thanks for the comments guys - much appreciated.

I took it for a good ride the other day - magic. 22 kays per litre, and performed great. It's not nearly as powerful as a Harley I used to have (or an old Kwaka 1000), but that's not what I like about it - it's just nice to ride.

Been looking for a used sissy bar for my daughter, but I've found they're as rare as hens teeth - I'll just ahve to wait. Can't afford a new bar, I blew all my money on the bike.

Really enjoy it though and very happy I got it.

Super nice!!! I just got my 2004 Speedie last night. I've wanted a Speedie for years too and finally found one I couldn't live without. I just have to come up with the extra cash for a windshield now, and get a tag on it. I'm rearing to go!!!! Next is to sell my 1999 Legend with only 15,000 miles on it. I dearly love my Legend, but too much torque for me. A high performance bike for me in the No. Georgia twisties is intimidating. So, if anyone is interested in a Legend, let me know.
