God! Who resurrected this old dead carcass of a thread!!! I just gotta say that my old '07, once I worked all the "bugs" out of it, and the fact that it doesn't have "round" wheels, I would take it anywhere in the world. The '19 is even better. It does still have bugs, but I did use to ride old airheads cross-country. I love those bikes, but jeezus-krist did I have to do a LOT of roadside repairs in the middle of nowhere. We've come a long way, baby!
