I have to agree with Will S, if the "look" of the rear fender is sufficient to make you discount the many other favorable attributes, then you're not really sold on the bike itself and will probably be unhappy in the long run. I made my decision based on the fact that after carefull comparison I think it is the best bike in it's class. The attitude of my dealer was also a definite plus, but if I had been unhappy with him I would have looked for another dealer and not bought a lesser bike.
Think carefully about what you really want - if a certain look, or image, or popularity is what drives you, and you see something else you like better, then go for it. If you want what many are discovering is a dam good, well engineered, great riding, classy and unique ride, then buy a Thunderbird. Personally I like the looks of my bike's rear end, but then I again I like a little meat on my bones...
