Thinking of trading my '09 1300 for a '08 Warrior

Should I? Thought I go straight to those that love Roadies!
Here's why I'm considering the trade:

The Warrior I've found is a ridiculously clean and low mileage bike. Was new old stock until sold last year. Recently traded back to Dealer, barely driven. Bone stock.

Looking for a little more heart pounding ride than my 1300.

Love the looks. Reminds me of my 1300 somewhat but more cool factor IMO.

It's different but not freakishly different. I don't think I've seen one in my market.

Trading or purchase won't break the bank.

Thanks for any feedback!

I traded my 09 VStar 1300 for an 2013 Road Star . I have no regrets. I like them both , but I like the smoother , torque - e er , Roadie more. I`m not sure which is faster though. I don`t know how it compares to a Warrior since I never rode one.

Well...the Warrior sold before I could get to the dealership.

JimK - how's the Road Star on the winding back roads compared to the 1300?

I find the Road Star to be very easy to ride. I had in this order , C50 Suzuki, S83 Suzuki, Vstar 1300 , and current 2013 Road Star . I find the Road Star as easy as any of the others.
