As excited as I've been about my upcoming purchase of an '05, I'm seriously considering another brand/type bike if the 'wings still have an aluminum frame.
I may have to settle for the ST1300 or something just short of the 'wing. Isn't it strange you don't hear about any aluminum frame problems on the FJR1300 or ST1300. Makes you wonder if there is a problem with the frame thickness to overall bike weight on the 'wing. :?
