I'm beginning to agree more and more. I just sold a '99 and I kinda wish I'd kept it and fuel injected it and sold my '03 instead... but the '03 has sentimental value.Looks wise I prefer the 1st gen.
Performance wise, 2nd gen. I have been tempted to buy one, but do not need the payment right now.
2nd gen looks more like all the other street bikes, not a good thing IMO
