Anyone here trade up from an America?

I bought my first Triumph a few months ago, a new 2011 America Classic Tourer, and overall I have to say I have loved this bike. It looks great, rides great, is comfortable, but..... Sometimes I wish I had more power than the smaller 865cc engine can give me. On the other hand, I don't know that I would be happy with the extra 200 pounds of weight that the Thunderbird would be. I was wondering if anyone on this site started with an America (or Speedmaster) and then bought a Thunderbird and what their impressions were.
