    Are ya gonna keep yer Beemer too? Then you, like me, will be able to draw comparisons between the two bikes when you wrench on both of them... They each have their advantages and disadvantages in that regard... oil changes will be easier on the Sporty...as will air filter changes... Get used to vibration, and I can give you some tips in that regard, although ALL Sporties prior to model year 2004 will have significant vibration... However, that vibration is usually not offensive, it's just part of the vibe, so to speak (nyuk nyuk)...

    Good luck, and keep us in the loop...

    I ended up getting a Buell to satisfy my V-twin needs. Now the Bmw will be parked in the back of the garage.
    Thanks for the encouragement everyone
