Thanks Larry, that's kind of what I figured.
If you're just looking for a generic occasional high, going 100 or so, the 1900 does a nice job of sounding good, feeling good, power applied.
If you gotta have that 'pretty damn fast' thing every once in awhile, sport bike RIGHT now fast, it won't do.
To further elaborate, because that's what I do, I came off a Hyabusa and chose my Strat because I wanted a cruiser and it was the only bike I road in that class that didn't feel like mud, except for a HD SE that has that bang for the buck as well. Mind you, it's not even in the same book of fast let alone chapter. The Busa is time machine fast, RIGHT NOW.
That said, the Strat had the best combination; fast enough, big enough, stable enough ( I skipped a Concours I liked because it wasn't very stable at speed on the highway) wants to lay into corners enough, etc, etc for me.
THAT said, if they'd add 6th and cruise control, I'd be happy.
