what stops you from loving it?

Yes please, do tell.

I'm really thinking about getting a Viking Fastback, but would like to hear any negatives folks have.

I have one, its good, not as great as some people make it out to be.
Mine was a little tight, but has stretched out.
It is very easy to take off the windows but they don't fit nicely into the bag they give you.
Overall I think its better than stock and I would buy it again, but it still needs some improvements.

Fit nicely? Could you explain more?

What makes it better than the OEM top? I have a hardtop and safari, so I have nothing for comparison.

Search my posts. I've made several comments about the top. I'd rather not start the debate again. k?

it is very similar to your safari top, just with windows that can be attached.
