Well, I've been around a bit and I'm finally an owner.
Well, after some long rides this summer on my Aprilia Tuono that sucked due to comfort and the fact that my wife wouldn't get on it. I decided to get back into the Yammie camp. Oh, and the fact that it was a very, very low mileage demo in conjunction with the ridiculous trade my friend gave me (manages the dealer) made it hard to pass up.
Loving it so far. Back when I registered on the Star forums I was in the market for a bike and wasn't sure if I was ready to go cruiser yet and being that I am a big fan of Yamaha I was shopping liners. Well, a ridiculous deal fell in my lap for the Tuono and I went that route and now I'm back on my other choice anyhow.
