I currently own an '03 954. Love the bike, and especially the look. I believe it has held up aesthetically and doesn't look anywhere near as old as it is. That being said, I had to leave it at my mechanic for some emergency front caliper repairs. The owner loaned me his beloved '98 919. As soon as I sat on it I was much more comfortable than on my own bike. It's not as "pretty" a bike as mine (although beauty is in the eye of the beholder), but so much more fun to ride, for me. Maybe because it's carbureted instead of FI? I know the SC33 had smaller brake discs and a 16" front wheel instead of the 17" that now is more common. But, any other things I should consider before going to an SC33? I'm seriously considering trading mine in for one. All opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
