Well had the itch and went down to my local Suzuki/Honda/Truimph Dealer to eye shop. Test rode the new Big Bore 1700 Thunderbird. Wasn't to impressed with the power and some of the features. Its a decent bike but didnt want to go done in power from the M109. So I ended up buying a brand new 2009 Rocket III. Last Rocket in the state of Texas they could supposedly find for me. So will have it right next to the M109.
