Good morning everyone. I'm very excited because before I left, my wife and I went to view some bikes just to kill some time. We happened to fine a used 06 M109r (blue) that had a couple mods already done. The bike is a very low mileage bike with a very unnoticable dent in the tank. I left for Afghanistan the very next day so that I can pack my things come home and swap companies. Well, while here, my wife sent me pics of my Shadow Spirit at the dealer and the M109r being purchased and taken home. I was so shocked!!! I cannot wait to get home in 2 days to ride now. I do understand it will be something to get used to since the 109 has like 5000hp more than the Shadow, but I'm sure I can handle it as long as I'm gentle. Oh, I love the forum! This has to be the best motorcycle forum i've been on so far unlike the others i was on for my CBR and Shadow (Noob bashing never stopped).
