I've been lurking for awhile and figured I might as well join and get some more detailed 411 on these big twins since I plan to purchase 1 within the next 2-3 months. I've been riding bikes since the age of 12 and I'm now in my 40's and so ready to step off the sportbike scene. I just sold my ZX-14R so this will be my 1st V-twin . I'm trying to hold out for the 2011 M-109R's to hit the dealers floor but have seen a few very clean low mileage 06-09's and considering my local dealers have no clue as to how many or when they will be getting the new 2011's might lead me to buy used to stop the money from burning a hole in my pocket. In the meantime I'll be doing my homework on these badd a-- bikes and looking at all the pro's/cons as to buying new or used. Any helpful tips you guys can offer will be greatly appreciated so please send them my way.

Welcome,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Biggest thing with buying used is, get to know the sellor. And learn to know what to look for. Some of these 9's, the folks complaining about this and that going bad. These are very fast, strong cruisers, They are not race bikes. Anything can be abused and broke!!!!

All this is good advice , I say Used , But Test Ride it First , and "Feel' the First To second Shift ,it takes a full Throw of your foot ,Do it Firmly
and Hit the accelerator , if it Pops out of gear , Walk away Fast !!

Good luck , I have heard a lot of Good things about Romney in West Virginia


oh yea
There Are Two new ones here in Richmond at Kens Cycle in Highland Springs a Blue ( the new Blue) ,and a black and orange
