G'day from NZ

G'day to all. I'm looking to buy my first triumph in a few weeks a 2010 speedmaster.
It was a toss up between the speedmaster and an HD nightser but after a test ride of both, the triumph stopped, handled and generally out performed the HD .
Both are good bikes but the HD felt a bit like sitting on the old XL 175 Honda trail i had when i was a kid while the triumph had that real cruiser feel to it!
I am looking forward to reading any posts about the model and getting some customising ideas.
