Funny. Aside from the ridiculous billet grips, I would not change a thing. The asking price, while stiff, is "cheap" when measured against what HD charges.

Another 8 years or so and the appeal of 145hp at the wheel (or my driver's license) will be gone. At that point it will be time to transition to a bike like this from the FZ1. Perhaps by then the depreciation curve a clean used Vic bagger will match my income stream. A low goal perhaps, but as I like to say, low goals are achievable

Maybe you'll lose the need for 145hp but will you be able to tolerate the +800lb wet weights?
