I had three Bullets in the 90s. Two 500s and a 350. They were all mechanically faultless but you certainly knew you were on a single and the tinware had a feeling of thinness.
I now ride a 2012 Woodsman. A totally different beast - cruises at an easy, loping 60mph, lots to the gallon and a very sporting silencer. Electric start and EFi too. I see it as a loosely classic styled modern bike - cheap and fun.
