Love it. I made the right choice. I've said before, I can't keep from smiling everything I am riding it.

Very nicely put. Hard to say more when the "right bike" meets the right rider. Hope those smiles just multiply.

Succinct, informative and accurate. What more does a review need to be?

Nicely done!

Congratulations.

As another rider who just reached that magic 2-day milestone, I agree with every point in the original review.

On another note, I backed up 300 pages in the Twin Talk forum plowed through a long history of interesting threads before buying the bike. It took several weeks but I learned a lot, met a bunch of very nice people and was impressed enough with the forum that you'll notice my 2nd ever post is with a Lifetime Membership Status.
