Well I made a big mistake the other day. Went for a ride with my new neighbor on his 2000 Mille. On the way back down the canyon switched my 919 for his bike. Not bad but other than the v-twin sound I wasnt sold. But now we stop at a dealer and I ride and ride two 03's - 954 and a R1. What can I say, but OMG I loved the 954, both had great power but the Honda just fit me perfect, way more comfy than the R1 to me. And the salesman offered me a great trade on my 919. Ive got serious lust for the power of these liter bikes, but I walked away and said I would think about.
So does anyone have any comments experience with a 954 or other last gen liter bike versus my 9er. I know the basics, comfort vs power, but the 954 was surprisingly comfy too. I can utilize a sportier bike more now also since I moved to Ft. Collins CO from ND, I have canyon riding out my backdoor. So what do you all think?
