I've got an '07 black, that I bought used in '08. I'm running Convertibars, Buell Pegs, Givi screen and Sargeant seat. Bike has all the power I need and handles pretty decently using stock suspension that has been fiddled with. Would love to get a better shock and GSX forks.
I've toured from NJ, out to OH, W VA, VA, PA and back. Also done a New England tour. I use Nelson Rigg bags and a tank bag, and I have a touring bike that I can have some fun in the mountain twisties with.
My wife rides a 2003 Kawi Z1000. While the comfort of my bike is much better than stock, I'd love to get the comfort factor of the Z1000.
