I sold my Shiver. I loved the bike. I never had any problems with it. I am only at 6600 miles. It is a comfortable and fun bike with plenty of power. I want to travel and ride some longer distances. I know the Shiver will do it with no problem. If there is a breakdown I don't know is if there will be a dealer near me that can get me on the rode again. I am afraid of the dreaded bad dealer network. I bought a slightly slower and heavier machine. The machine I bought has good dealer support nation wide. I bought a XR1200X. It is not your normal Pirate mobile and it seems to irritate the Harley crowd like the old Buells did. I will miss the Shiver for we had good times. Tomorrow I turn her in to the dealership and pick up my new bike. The Shiver is a good bike. It seems to have not received the fallowing it should for such a great bike. I would assume people are afraid of the old Italian stigma that goes with any Italian steed. I wish I could afford both but maybe I will be back in the future with another. Thank you for all the good info on the forum.
