I continue to go back and forth on this. The weight isn't an issue to me other than an annoyance. Still I wouldn't mind shedding a bit. But the sheer mass is more than I need and it takes up precious garage space (I currently have to store one bike next to the lift in order to make it all work). I'm, not sure this would be small "enough" to completely fix that mass thing, but I really think it is more "right" sized - more Goldilocks for me. Then I think how much more I would have to spend to get less: * No dual discs remains my biggest pet peeve (and I'm assuming not linked, no RDRS etc). * No crash bars * No passing lamps/driving lights * Smaller fuel tank * Smaller windshield * Smaller bags * I can't stand true forwards, so I'd need to switch to floorboards and make some changes Maybe it's a little disingenuous bitching about a smaller bike and it having fewer accessories when one of the things I REALLY like about it is that it weighs a little more than 100# less than the king. I guess you gotta trade something. I could live with the smaller tank, bags, and even shield (or modify). But what chaps my ass the most is I'd have to spend MORE for it and I'd still be stuck with a single disc. As much as I like it, and I REALLY DO LIKE IT, I don't think I can give up all that for one. But if those things don't matter to you, then I can't talk you out of it.
