You can probably pick one up used at a fairly reasonable price.
Just a thought. Good luck whatever you do.

Bob, i have not only because i want a fairing already on the bike. i might consider the Venture, but i am not in love with the styling, mainly the speedometer. i do like the bike, and including you, know a few owners that LOVE them. i'd like a bike with a fairing already installed and either no trunk or a truck that is removable. i am kinda painting myself in a corner with those demands, so i might have to adjust them. i am really leaning towards the HD Street Glide right now, but its a LOT of money, and i still don't know how the power and reliability will stack up to the metrics. i dunno, the winter will give me plenty of time to decide. i am hoping to go to a bike show in NY with Frank. hopefully i can see the new Voyager there and make a decision about that bike in person, as opposed to just based on pics. but the Yamaha is definitely in contention if i go with a full dresser. thanks for the info !
