Holy shee-at. This thing is a biiiig step up from an m50. I've been trying to decide whether my next bike will be a vtx 1800 or this. The m109 was very easy to corner and do slow speed maneuvers with, but had a real twitchy first gear. I don't know if this was due to my own lack of skill but it seemed like the clutch had a real short friction zone and starting from a stop was, well, exciting to say the least.
The vtx I tested was real smooth and seemed tame in comparison but top heavy for sure and that made me less confident at slow speeds.
I'm still having a hard time making a decision, but for those who chose an m109 over other bikes (and esp if you have exp with a vtx) I'd like to hear your thoughts about what made you go with the m109.
I need a daily driver and I only have funds for one form of transportation so I can't just buy both. Thanks.
