Nice, I am enjoying mine. Don't know about you, but for the handling of this bike is night and day from my Kingpin. Once you get up some speed this thing is really nimble for such a big bike.

I had test rode a few of these, but still thought my Kingpin handled as good... But I went out yesterday on one of my "usual" routes and was just amazed at how much more comfortable and easy the ride was. You are right, once you are rolling, she feels lighter and more nimble than the pin ever did.

Congrats Lance on the new steed! Still hope to catch you sometime in the Mindoro Cut area. For now, will be riding the '08 Kingpin Tour. Vision should be a nice ride for the colder weather ahead. Got snowtires?
