Amen, brother... Never listen to the "I've done lots of research, but have zero experience" guys, especially when there are so many experienced opinions here, on SS and Russian Iron to name a few.
I bought my 07 with 21654 Km on it. It had not been babied, but had been maintained as per the manual. It runs like a clock, will go places I'm not willing to ride it to and everyone that has ridden on it has grinned ear to ear....including me.
My BMW has sat in the garage for nearly 2 months...unridden since I got this thing.
