I have put $500.00 down on a '08 VX Cruiser (bucket type seat) but leaning toward losing the deposit to buy a new '06 Honda F-12 for the same money. Less the $500.

I don't like the Yam. lack of storage (tiny), low mount mirrors, and the spout.
Like the large flat platform on the rear and bucket seat design (a bit too crampy though).

Both say they get great miles/hour. 110 on Yamaha and 125 on non-turbo Honda. Need advice FAST. Dave
