My bad, thought the question was about that top one. Still like the idea of wiring the passing switch to the horn though.

Maybe its what you are used to riding. My mag wheel carves up the back roads. Stable on the freeway too. I haven't ridden a big wheel Bonnie (19",) but if I owned one and that's what I road everyday, I bet I would feel like it rocked the back roads.

I thought the 17" mag wheels were for quicker steering Love mine in the canyon.

i love my mag wheel.

tubeless tires, quick steering, tears up the canyons something fierce, radial tires, no spokes to clean, and makes the bike look more modern.

i did not like the shorter seat, so i got an earlier taller seat off the forums here, and now its a perfect fit.

Yeah, I get to ride both, spoked and mag wheel. They are pretty different, but neither better in my opinion. Just what you're used to and personally prefer. Both carve the back roads pretty nicely in my experience.

It is easier to adjust your line in midst curve on the mag wheel version, for those who don't plan ahead sufficiently.

19'' wheel tracks better straight , harder in turns ,mag [17''] faster in turns ''watch lines '' ment you can cut them short easy .. thruxon 18'' best of both worlds in size ...but then rake in degree's diff ...so try to ride each one before buying ... but 17'' like scooter great around town , need to pay more attention on road tracking...

Thumbs up

My 2013 Purple and White bike arrived at the dealers today. I like the way the new "solid" oil lines clean up the look of the engine and it has a proper tank badge. I also think that it looks good in the pictures but way better in the flesh. Chuffed.
