Info: Thought Iīd try a new type. 1000cc V-Twin power, similar performance to the blade but cheaper cycle parts. Not exactly in love with it at the time of writing (October ī05) but will see how we go. Itīs just not a īBlade! Sheīs gotta go. Just canīt get on with her, the power is not in the right place for my style. Update: She''s gone. ''04 ''blade now in the hizz-house. :-D
