On appearance (color & simplicity), the SM caught my eye & heart, reminding me of my first '71 Triumph Bonneville. On test riding this bike, the nimbleness of its handling was extremely attractive; yet, with I wasn't impressed with the braking (nor was I impressed with the Bobber's brakes initially). After getting it home last week and running local country roads in far north Texas, I was pinching myself at how smooth was the ride on taking bumps with ease. Similar to the Bobber, the foot pegs were/are a pain in the feet, and floorboards (a must for both SM & Bobber) are on order with the windshield and bags. Downsizing to this little monster, from a Harley UltraLow and Bobber, I trust that I'll be content with just one bike when the floorboards arrive.
