For me, the oil head boxer took some time to fall in love with, the more I rode the bike the more I liked it, the hex head was much the same except I now had experience and already loved the concept.
The new liquid cooled version is sort of the opposite, I was impressed with the smoothness and power on the initial ride home (no test ride for me) but as the miles rack up the engine becomes less of a novelty and I have to admit that during a long ride it feels like the old bike, I'd like to have my 05 back for a day now just to compare.
