I think you made the right choise, I was like you and wanted to get into the whole cruiser thing, heck my dad and brother both own one, so I kinda wanted to "fit in" , so I traded my at the the time fjr 1300 for a almost brand new rs warrior, the bike was alot of fun but cornered for crap, my pegs and exhaust pipe were always scraping in every turn, my back hurt from the constant "C" ridieng position, so I bought a new seat with back rest, it fixed the problem but I was still missing one thing, inline four speed, so I sold the warrior at a huge loss and picked up my 919, its truly the best bike ive EVER owned.
It just does everything I need, and is way more comfortable than any bike I have had before it, that includes the fjr which always felt like I was in a oven.
I have done alot of searching for the bike that fits me and well the 919 fits the bill.
My list of other bikes include: Honda shadow spirit, Yamaha fz1, Triumph thunderbird sport, Yamaha fjr, Road star warrior....
I would never sell my 919, if anything I would add a bike to the stable, but im sure it would sit to much.
