It's great to see this response of yours to a rational and logical argument. It will put everything else you've said or will say into the appropriate perspective.

Cruiser guys aren't born... they're made.

What exactly is a 'cruiser guy' anyway? Never could figure that one out.

Beats me, man. The only real categorization of motorcyclists I've ever subscribed to is: riders vs. the garage ornament crowd.

Even those G-O guys have their uses.

That's the source of most of my motorcycle purchases of all types. Most people buy a cruiser or a DP or a sportbike or whatever and put maybe 5K miles on them over 5-6 years and I get to buy a barely broken in bike for pennies on the dollar. Keep those guys a-comin'!

Nice Review Pete.
Even if the price was $12,000 I don't think I would buy it. Like longride said the bang for the buck is pretty low compared to other sport bikes e.g. Buell 1125, ZX-10 or even a Ducati 1098.. I have never been on a boxer-twin but suspect the "experience" can't be worth nearly 2 times the V-Twin experience of the Buell or 1.5 times the Ducati experience. Good job Pete.

Dirt versus street? That's a reasonable divide, I think...

I prefer the division of tough, do anything, ride anywhere western intermountain bikers vs florida wimpy "oo oo it's so cold" riders.
