keeping the 06. theres a 08 raven at a used bike shop ive had my eye on, if we ever agree on price its mine. then one will be a track only bike.

the cafe/bobber bikes really interest me. ive been wanting to build one for a few years now just havent found the right bike at the right price

This is what I really want for a daily driver and turn my R1 into track only but there is no way im going to find one in the XR1200x platform for a decent price since they dont make the x anymore...

I will let you know when my move is complete, a dude that works in my building has one and i stare at it like a kid in a toy store every time i pull my buke up next to it, its the only HD I have ever seriously considered buying.

As long as you still have the 06 I approve if not you're dead to me!
