I'm planning to look at and probably buy an 05 Connie this week. I'm a big guy, a 6-2, 225lb. weightlifter, so I don't think the top-heavy weight will bother me. On the other hand, I'm 55. Anyway, you only live once. Hope all these generally positive reviews are on the mark. Wish me luck. I understand taller riders generally install the bar risers. Any suggestions?

I've owned an '06 model since June '07, and have been very happy with the purchase despite having a faulty circuit board that left me stranded twice (luckily close to home), but did get the issue resolved quickly at the dealership under warranty once the diagnosis was made.
The only negative is the top-heaviness that makes slow turns on parking lots, etc a little unnerving, esp. if the pavement is uneven. Other than that, I would highly recommend this machine for daily commutes or 2-up touring.
