i had to sell my thunderbird sport last summer due to financial reasons (i was broke). i'm now just a couple of months away from being able to buy the bike i always wanted, a speed triple. all this time i've been keeping my eye on the prices of the 955i but i've recently checked out the 1050 and see that it's possible to pick up an early 1050 for a similar price of a 955i. i love the look of both so, which one should i go for????????
