I LOVE the way my T-bird's rear end looks. I traded my Harley in and bought it and haven't looked back since. I put almost as many miles in the last year on the Bird as I had on the Harley in 4 years. I rode several Harleys, all 3-7 THOUSAND dollars more than what I paid for my Bird, and NONE of them had the power, ride, or handling that I have now.
I thought I missed the Harley for a few, then I got to ride it again when I had some work done on the Bird. Then I got my triumph back... No remorse ... NONE.
If the LOOK of what you ride means more to you, then stick with what you like, after all, it's part of why you like the bike in the first place. There is no PERFECT machine, so you have to balance the pros and cons of which aspects are important to YOU.
Good luck with your decision!
