Couldn't agree more !!
Tried 7 bikes over the years before finding a black '09 that just grabbed my heart and
it hasn't let go. Rode street, dirt, dualsports, Goldwing, HD's, and this one is truly
Went a notch further by removing the decals, blacking out the trees, bars, forks,
swingarm, calipers, etc, etc. I call it the batcycle now. LOL
The engine is still silver, rims, ALL bolt heads, and the silver of the discs makes
for a killer contrast to the otherwise all black scooter. This baby rocks!
Sounds like we both made a wonderful choice, and as you well know by now,
black is the fastest color too. <G>
Afterthought: As you mentioned it is very heavy especially up front for an off roader,
but I didn't want a motocrosser. Just something for blasting dirt roads and ATV trails n' such.
RR beds, rolling over curbs to get from the Wal Mart lot to Lowe's without going out to the
frontage road etc, the batcycle excels in all these areas, and climbs stairs n' hills with ease
with the heavy-ish front end.
