I rode one a couple of months ago up and down the street. Not really long enough to get a good feel for it but I was pretty impressed by the balance and power. Once you get rolling it feels like it loses 100 lbs. I thought it was a pretty nice bike.
I've got my heart set on a T100, but the 1200r Roadster is starting to look like a real fun bike as well. When I'm in a position to buy I'd like to ride the Sporty, XB12r, Thruxton and T100 and basicaly toss a coin I guess.
My daughters had a sleepover last night, I was up till 1 am listening to half a dozen teenieboppers squealing and giggling about who said what about whom. Then I was up @ 430 to come into work..........feisty don't quite cover it.
