I wasn't there for you to block my view. By the sounds of it, you probably have some great concert memories.

Default I feel safer on my GL1500

I always feel safer riding my Wing over my Harley, because Honda pays more attention to visibility, fore and aft, and leg protection than Milwaukee. Moreover, the big Wing doesn't fall over, it rolls over, supported evenly by front and rear crash bars, making it easier to right with the help of a friend or two. I enjoy my Wing riding solo, but the weight is a problem with the wife on board.

I always feel safer riding my Tiger because it weighs half as much and can get out of its own way.

Perhaps a smaller bike or stronger legs are in order.

I never rated a bike based on how easy it was to pick up.
