I will be in the market for my next bike in the next couple of months. I really like the looks and feel of the TL R & S, but have never riden a V-twin. I have owned two inline fours in the past ('92 Seca II & '92 Kantuna 600). I liked the Katana alot by the way. It wasn't hard edged but it was user friendly and I was able to keep up with the guys that had the "good" bikes because they couldn't use theres as well as I could. Anyway, If I opt for one of the TL bikes which one is more suited for daily street use and occasional touring. I am very much aware of the numbers, ie BHP, wieght, etc. But what really counts, is first hand experienced feed back from the owners. If I had the $$$$, I would just buy all the bikes I like, but I don't live in a perfect world. Thanks for any help.
