After much debate, and the fact that I had money burning a hole in my pocket from the sale of my '62 MGA, I finally decided that it was time to trade the '99 with 93,000 miles on it for something newer. With a little searching I found a used '05 that was floundering on the show room floor down at 441 Cycle in Plantation, FL. The reason it wasn't moving was the 24,000 miles on the odometer. What all of that means is that the price, at least in my opinion, was great and it allowed me enough change left over to purchase a 6 year extended warranty. Bottom line, yesterday I rode the '99 the 260 miles down I95 to the dealership and the return trip was on my new/used '05. WOW - I now understand what all the fuss is about with that extra 16 HP and the unbelievable brakes. The other advantage to buying used is that this bike has several farkles that came along for the ride; Rick Mayer heated seats in leather, headlight and brake light modulators, "J" pegs, luggage rack and led brake light, ice link set up for Ipod. So, all I need to add is the communication hardware.
Color me HAPPY
