Look at page 89 of the other thread. Highfive gives a great real world review. I took one out for a test ride on 1/9/13 and was very impressed with the initial feel of the bike. Very light feeling compared to my KLR and it does not feel top heavy in the least. I will be buying one in the spring for sure. It is one of those bikes that when you ride it ,it leaves a lasting first impression .. The only other bikes that did that for me out of all the ones I have had in 40 plus years was a 1974 Husky 125wr and a 2005 KTM 200exc..I only rode it for 25 minutes on the street but could tell immediately it was for me.It really does just feel right.Good luck in your choice!
