But the Warrior has soul so it will not be for sale :-)
I'd really like a 6th gear and another gallon or two of gas for long rides, but at least with the 4 gallon tank I get plenty of chances to get off the bike and stretch.

Have you considered the 1200 Tenere? I'm a bit of a Yamaha fan, so I find myself checking them out lately. That's the big adventure bike I'd probably buy for myself.

And yes, the Warrior does have soul, it's not just another cookie cutter cruiser. I plan to keep mine for a long time.
