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.
