Not happy with mine
By Patrick Cremin(Owner), Feb. 7, 2009
I now have 500 miles on my new 09. I like some things and hate some others. Let's start with the bad:

We picked up the front end and loosened the shock springs right off and then tightened them just so they didn't rattle. Same for the s... Read Full Review
