Looks nice, now I'm just trying to imagine it with about 5K in "stuff" hanging all over it...
You DO have that reputation you know!

But it's YOUR money, and YOUR bike...so have fun! :wink:

Any first impressions / comparisons ?

Now that you've asked, yes. When the fans kick on, they're much louder than the other 1800's I've had. There's absolutly NO wobble. Of course, I had them to install All Balls, before I ever rode it. Also, it seems the tranny doesn't "clunk" like the others did, even when they were brand new. The stereo is much better also. Wow, what a difference! The jury is still out, on the OEM Euro lights. IMHO, they don't show up as well in bright sunlight as the 01-05's do. The seat, & grip warmers are nice, although it seems to me, the right side grip gets hotter than the left. The foot warmers do block some air, & the warmth is felt. The Navi system is really cool. Still trying it out, so there's a lot I haven't tried on it yet.

"Finance and Insurance Manager"

A term used in the automotive/motorcycle business..the last person you see before signing the deal. He is responsible for getting ALL he can out of you before you sign...extended warranty, service contracts, etc.

And usually, the interest rate they give you is MORE than what you would have got if you go in pre-approved....it's ALL about the bottom line!!

Go in a deal blind...bend over, 'cause you're gonna get screwed!! :!:

Verdayne,

Congrats on your new beauty. Just don't forget to bring extra water with you when you'll use your credit card for bling, bling. Why the water??? Well, it'll be so sizzling hot, that you'll need the water to cool it off. :lol:
