One of the reasons I steer away from the sportier bikes :p I'd probably be dead by now, just because of the temptation to drag my knee.

headlights - fugly.
I think its an age thing - back in the day (the 80s) all the home made streetfighter bikes had twin round headlights , its a nod back to that and probably why I like it - I think the new speed triple headlights are fugly , it wouldnt do if we all liked the same stuff : )

I agree, I prefer the dual round headlights on the speed3's. You will love that 1050, I had a Sprint ST, and the engine is so much fun.
