    Different. I still stick with the 9. The 9's have more personality to them!

    nice bikes, I just dont like that they have nice chrome rims with a wide tire and then they cover it up with the fender. I looked at one when I purchased my nine and might of bought it if it wasnt almost three times as much. They look better in person.

    Beautiful bike and unique. It gets lots of attention at bike shows.

    Too cartoonish for me though. I always think of 'Roger Rabbit' when I look at it.

    I still like my 109 better.
    I saw one at Woodson's motor sports in Fort Wayne. They said that it turns like an aircraft carrier but was surprisingly nimble for such a huge bike. I love the styling cues but wish they had cut back that rear fender some.

    Also, my son said "that looks like something from that movie ROger Rabbit"! You and my 14 year old are on the same wavelength!

    on the fender part but it looks nice. trying to find me one right now....to bring down here. Then I will be double king....LOL
    An d by the way found someone with a nine. An lebanese descendant guy. Black 0 with everything kurkyakin on it. Even the 300 wheel and 10.5 rims . But he never went in this forum so his rear side tire clearance is about 1or two mm; told him was going to search the forum for an answer to his problem.

    By the way guys what do you think? Over here every one tampers with the odometers. Specially used car dealers. They have a machine that works with the electronic odometers and set them back. Does a 2004 rune with 300 miles sound right? Would a bike with 18000 miles would be too worn? I have those two options right now.
    Your thoughts please....
