Default Who here own a TT???

I went to a local Harley dealer today with intentions of checking the ergos on a Uly. Alas, the Uly was too tall for my vertically challenged legs(31" inseam). I could probably get used to the ride height, but it would take a while. Sitting just to the left was a brand new TT. I sat on it, just to see...AND WOW!!!!! My butt was sayin' "Hey that's kinda nice", the riding position was excellant and I can even deal with the (removable) number plates. So, who has one and what do you think....I have read a couple of online fluffy articles, but I would like some real opinions, please....

A few guys on the Badweb have them and have good things to say about them.

My buddy who is 6'3" and overly cramped (for how he likes to sit) on the Sportster or Superglide. He is looking very hard at the TT. It's a bit less money than the Ulysses and the easily removable number plates should double as supports for soft saddlebags. He test rode one and really enjoyed it.

I was thinking the same thing about the number plate as saddle bag supports. Even if they could not be used, their mounting points could be used to fab up a bracket of some sort...
