I traded my 2009 Custom Special Edition on Feb 1, 2012 for a 2011 Black Vaquero. As mentioned in previous posts, I have never regretted the decision. I now have approximately 3,500 miles on it. I've loved every minute on the bike. The radio, the six speed transmission, and the cruise control are amazing. Don't get me wrong, the 900 cc bike is a smooth bike, but the 1700 is incredible. Well hope my two cents helps you make your decision. Oh and btw, I have a friend who bought a Harley...he bought it with ALL the bells and whistles...he paid around $30K about 3 years ago...I only paid $12K for my bike...that doesnt include my trade in and the cash I put down on it...but I have never ridden a Harley so I can't speak for them...heard they vibrate and will fall apart...just sayin!
