Well here goes. I loved my 1999, it had 28,000ish miles on her when we parted ways. I loved her very much. However that little skank had a ridiculously hard seat that smashed my boys everytime I rode. So that was my only gripe with her. Now, the 2011. I love this just as much. However, 12 years later and they still have not fixed the testicle crushing seat which apparently was forged in mordor. I now have 7,000 lovely miles and am hoping for several more. I will be getting a new seat (preferably made by white elves or the amish).
