It handles well. It feels heavy compared to the light litre bikes, but it has torque off idle, and when the tach sweeps past 7 grand the fast forward button gets punched hard. C-mon out to Chicago for the cornfield run with me and Buz.

F*ck that, it's cold outside.



Makes sense that the geometry needed to be stable at a buck fitty ain't quite the same as the geometry needed to shredd corners.....kool bike though.

Do you mean the response to LR's post where you used the words "GPTB"(which you use as a pejorative),"followers"(again in a negative context) and "Harley groupies"? If so your idea of debating is different than mine and sounds a lot like insults and name calling.You really need to take a good look at some of your posts.......your self knowledge seems a little lacking.

I am sure you will use the heavy handling as an excuse when I beat you...I'll counter with you have more than twice the displacement..But you are welcome to use any bike..[b] cause it ain't the tool
