I just bought a blue 109 haven't got it yet. Not really looking for new bike but had a Intruder 1500 with a leaky recalled gas tank with no tanks around to fix it. Sounds like you guys love your 109's. Did I make the right choice? I went with the blue one didn't see it in person now I am thinking I should have went black. How does the blue look in person for any of you that have one?
