If MH would use this style of front end for the gl1800, it would probably stop the wobble for those who like to ride at 40mph with their hands off the handlebars...

I really want to get one of those for my wife. I am supposedly on a test
ride list when they are available in this country. My only beef is that the
250cc will fall short, or over-rev the engine for interstate travel. They
need to put the Suzuki Burgman's 650cc Parallel twin in the MP3. :D

Maybe not. My first bike was an EX250 - a 250cc Kawasaki Ninja. I used to run 80mph on the highway all day long. Not the top speed, it would go faster.

There is a review in the current issue of either RoadBike or Rider mag (can't remember). They tested the 250cc version. They even drove it into the gravel piled up on the shoulder of a turn to see how it would handle it.
