I went from an r6 to an m109r instead of a busa or r1. Before I saw this bike I wasn't really in to cruisers. I was always planning on getting a bigger sportsbike but then I seen the m109r, and it just seemed to have the complete package. Now that I have it, its like christmas in July. Couldn't be happier. I still have my r6 but now I let my wife ride that. I am just wondering how many out there are in my same position.
