Thanks for asking GWN. I had a decision to make last week which I was hoping the Forums would help but I had a technical difficulty getting in to the Forums so I went with what has worked for me before, research and price. I was looking at a new '12 cross roads with batwing fairing, highway bars, soft saddlebag chrome kit versus a '05 Kingpin with windshield, saddlebags, Mustang seats w/backrests, highway bar, Stage 1 exhaust, Ness laydown plate mount, tachometer, Ness fly bars, Kuryakin grips and a chrome swingarm and 30K kilometers. After much deliberation and anxiety I decided on the Kingpin. It had a lot of goodies already, was ready to go and I had a hard time finding any negative information about the '05 anywhere on the internet(just preferences). Also, it's half the price. I still need to get all kinds of "stuff", like helmets, jacket(s), gloves etc. Still have my old leather jacket from the eighties and if I really suck in my gut I can zip it up, but breathing might be an issue. OK that's enough, this post is too long now but that's what I have now the '05 Kingpin.
