I've already posted this, but will reiterate - that is why I posted this topic. I'm in the middle of a decision. I'll decide either to keep the street bike and fully embrace the street side with them, or sell the thing to make a statement. Haven't decided yet. I bring it up here on Advrider because this is kind of like sitting around a fire having a discussion with a bunch of other enthusiasts - good place to put stuff out there for discussion.
