I love the 109, in fact, it's been my favorite bike out of all the bikes I've ever owned, and that's been quite a few. I'm just the type of person who keeps a bike for a while then moves on to something else. I'd like to stay with something that has similar styling and performance to the 9 and the one bike I think fills that bill is the Hammer. It's not quite at the same performance level as the 9, but I don't ride fast that much anymore anyway, and Victorys are absolutely beautifully built bikes. They have the nicest fit and finish of any of the makes I've ever seen.
My problem is two fold; finding the specific model I want, and I will have to sell the 9 BEFORE I can get a Hammer. The only Hammers I like are the '05-'07 premiums, and I'm finding out they aren't easy to find. The vast majority of used Hammers I find don't have the premium package. This may mean I might have to go without a bike altogether from the time I sell the 9 until I can find the Hammer I want. THAT IS GONNA SUCK!
I haven't made up my mind for sure yet, but I'm certainly leaning this way.
