When you're pushing it around the tarmac up to the point after you sling
your leg over it --it feels like a pig. Both legs over it and up to 100 mph
the bike is surprisingly nimble which is a word that doesn't come easy to
say for a bike that is almost 8 feet long --front faring to back of saddle
bag. A Metzler Comp K in the front with a Metronic in the rear (OEM
profiles) seems to work well. It can readily bury the 85 MPH speedo (Joke)
at 10,000 feet elevation. Joy!!
