Frenchy Oh, well, I guess we'll talk... The wifey did say I should sell it at the end of this season and save all winter. This is the part where I stop talking about it at home. Because "I thought we discussed this..."

So now I'm going to have to shine it for the ride, huh. I hope I don't spill my coffee on the tank, oh the pressure. To think I was going to put a PCIII in and do the Caddmann conversion this winter.

If I wait until fall, I'll be able to hear if there are any big issues with the new platform...

Frenchy Love it, Love it, Love it! I can't wait to get one. The Voyager is for me. Don't get me wrong, I love my Nomad, but if the Voyager was out then, I would have bought it. I like the style of the Nomad bags, but loading them up can be a task. Especially in the rain. They tend t leak if you've got too much stuff. Which I do. I'll probably ride my Nomad for one more season, then trade it in over the winter with a nice hefty chunk of cash. I wish they would hurry up and release how much! Anywhere around the 16's and I'm in, over 17, and I may have to wait for a used one.

Tod I actually like the fairing, but I agree on the comments about the bags looking like an aftermarket slap-on.

Overall, it looks pretty good to me.
