Nothing! That new S1000RR is a scorcher!

No, seriously, the Bimmer tourers are great. Just ask Buz. For my tastes, I's lean more toward the R1200R or the new Multistrada 1200.

Thanks for the enriching explanation. And let me tell you that as days go by, I'm slowly starting to realize that my counter steering confidence has a lot to do with the curve handling issue. I drive a long uphill curvy road home, and every time I seem to be doing better, leaning a little more than the night before. Practice DOES make perfect after all. Again thanks for the explanation!
