That's what happened when I bought a cruiser. Didn't know anyone who had one, no test rides, so I just bought it. Ended up not liking it, got stuck with it for a while. Not doing that again.

Same problem as the Buells, IMHO. Just about when you were ready for the power to kick in it hit the rev limiter and you had to shift.

I like the Streetfighter but i think it's just way too much, price and power, for me.

I see what you're saying but I am reaching the point that I feel it is a quality of life issue.
My quality of life will be impaired if I don't have a Streetfighter.
I been a good boy, I deserve a Streetfighter.
I can afford the payments, I should get a Streetfighter.

Of course, I won't be able to afford my mortgage, my daughters college or the divorce lawyer my wife will require, but I WANT a Streetfighter.
