Been lurking here for 2 months now and finally got my 109 last week.
Its 2014 model with 14500kms and a some nice accessories.
I have had bikes most of my life
MX bikes as a kid, Road bikes as an older kid
Z1000ST Kawa at age 19
Adventure bikes for the last 10 years.
Sold my KTM 1190 just over a year ago and was ready for something different
Didn't like the Harley thing as the whole "Life Style" thing has made it seem rather lame (Sorry Harley fans) but I didn't see myself buying Harley underwear and socks and tea cups and sunglasses and matching washer dryers etc.
Initially looked at the Rocket III but the "somewhere in the middle" look of the 109 sold me straight away!
Its like a Cruiser had sex with a Sports bike and birthed a monster.
550 kilos in the last 3 days and I'm loving it. Luckily where I am in South Africa (Eastern Cape) we have some great winters days (if you can call 22Deg C winter) So lots of riding coming up still!
Oh yea best part is when I showed the Girlfriend the pics she liked the 109 so much she offered to go halvies on it BARGAIN!!!!
Some great info on this site and hope to be an active member!
