I've had my '12 NRS since April. Enjoying it immensely. My other bike is a '03 XL1200C (somewhat hotrodded up). I love the differences. NRS is definitely my favorite. Believe it or not, I kinda like the "quiet pipes". Can't see spending $1000 for 5-8 hp to make it louder. Oh well, that's just me. Anybody from Jax give me a shout.
