I would definately recommend getting it, you really cant beat it for the price. Its only a 950, but it is by no means underpowered, and walks right by my buddies 883 Sportster, and my cousins 1100 V-star. I was looking at the seat that Pacific Coast Star offers, I'll probably try it out this spring, as they say they give you like 30 days to try it out. I gotta wait till our 3.5 feet of snow melts first! The stock seat is actually really comfortable, if you ride it less than 30 miles at a time, I think it lacks padding. When I bought mine, I looked at the 1300, the 950 and a leftover 07 roadstar. What turned me off the roadstar was it was still carbureted, and the insurance cost was considerably higher. Between the 950, and the 1300 what really sold me was the price, and it looks really good too(I got the red one, non-touring). Actually won a 3rd place trophy in the metric class at a local benefit/poker run/bike show. Only other upgrade I plan on doing is some pipes to make it louder.
