I've heard, mind you - 'heard' that the 'Wings are a bit terrifying in parking lots. Apparently they will fall down with little warning.

So- be young, be foolish, be happy, but be careful!

...in concert with the Hawkmeister, you have to check on the pin-reset on the bowling alley, as sometimes the crumbs from the bagle toaster make their way into the pin-rset device and you'll always get an 8-10 split. Also, keep the wine bottle cork-remover in adjustment, or it'll make a mess in the pantry.

Roadking 769lbs, Victory vision 849lbs, Goldwing 860lbs,

RoyalstarVenture 869, shall I continue?
I hope you aren't getting those weights from the manufacturers spec sheets. The Japanese especially are inveterate liars about motorcycle weight. Generally the "dry weight" can be one hundred pounds less than an actually weighed ready to ride bike. No way does 5-6 gal of gas and 3-4 qts of oil weigh 100 pounds. I did a survey once of claimed dry weights and actual weights in magazines that bothered to weight the bikes. 100 pounds difference is common with the Big4.

You forgot to account for coolant? Oh and the flux capacitor lubrication system.

Bottom line is it is one of the best handling bikes for its weight, I know it was heavier than my 1997 vfr700?

I've also 'heard' that the air conditioner tends to freeze up in very humid weather, but mainly when the 'recirc' mode is used.
