I just put the review up as it appeared when I was on youtube looking at something else - Richard Proenneke.
I had an 06 I ordered new. Picked up a 2015ES used. There is a marked difference between the capabilities of the bike. The Gen 3 is a smoother engine, with much better fuel management. The electronic suspension is extremely handy and makes very noticeable changes to the ride and handling of the bike. Cruise, heated grips, etc. No comparison in my book, and I loved the 06. I can only imagine that the 6 speed, LED lighting, and cornering lights only enhance the bike. Are they similar, sure, but the refinements make all the difference.

I spent most of my money on guns, motorcycles, women, and whiskey. The rest, I just wasted!
