I looked at alot of bikes when I decided I had outgrown my Suzuki M50 and the Thunderbird was at the top of my list. Beautiful bike but like everything else out there it did not fit me (34" inseam) and to set it up for light touring but the price well into the upper teens. I was lucky when I found my XR, fit me great without modifications and got it with harbags, winshield, crash bars, and passenger backrest for 13k, cheapest thing out there at the time.
