I currently have two rides - a 2006 VFR800 and a 2010 T-Bird that I just picked up a week ago. I've already put 500 km. on it and plan to do many more.
The power and handling are awesome, especially for a cruiser. You can put it into curves with confidence and can actually spin the rear tire while in second by grabbing a hand full of throttle. The surge of power is incredible.
I test rode several Harley's (Fat Bob, Fat Boy Low and Super Glide) - then I test rode the T-Bird. It's by far the more superior ride. So much so that I bought it on the spot.
As for appearance, it looks bad ass - pictures don't do it justice. The tank is huge, the back tire is huge, the pipes are huge and the sound is deep and throaty out of the box. It has just enough bark but not too much to draw unwanted attention from the law.
The one gripe I have is the stock seat. It's not bad on short rides (1 hour or less) but on a 300 KM ride, both my wife and I were very sore. That said, I have the Trimph longhaul touring seat on the way (as a part of an accessory package promotion) hopefully it will provide some relief.
If you are considering a Harley, or any other cruiser for that matter I would suggest taking a T-Bird for a ride before you buy.
Upgrades/Accessories: As a part of the promotion this past month I will be getting the longhaul touring seat, the quick release touring windscreen and the passanger backrest. Looking forward to installing the goodies.
