Only seeing this now John. I never liked the S to be honest. The overall ergos of the X appealed more. Likewise, similar appearance and ergos appeal to me on the 500.haven't you considered the 'S' model griff .
smaller and easier to ride than the x model.
once I'm done with my 900 that'll be my next bike.
just like the DCT and the frunk. by that time I'll be 70.
