Rode an '08 this week. Legroom was not an issue for me even with a 36" inseam but the riding position was more sporty than I was looking for. Also the engine was a bit vibey for my taste although the sound was sweet. Of course this bike had less than 5000 miles on it and I understand they get smoother with age.
Another issue for me was the placement of the gauges, the angle was all wrong for me making them difficult to read at a glance, beautiful to look at while sitting still, just placed at an odd angle.
A lovely bike to gaze upon but just not the bike for me.
