Honestly the bike seems more like a bandit with ohlins than a K1600GT/L or goldwing. Japanese/euro competition is closer to 12-15k.

Tell me about your UJM experience.

Totally forgot about the Buell connection. I've got to ride one of those, along with some tube framed buells. I really did enjoy the XB12 and 1200R I've ridden.

WI has a terrible used bike economy; everyone asks 1-2k over what I'd pay somewhere else. I've seen katanas(mid 90s, painted flat black) on craigslist for 3500 for months. Bikes are toys here I guess.
