Took the bike out today to get some seat time and rode backroads,Interstate, and downtown. First Impression? Holy Crap what took me so long. No slips,slides and smooth. The only thing I can fault is slowing at a stop light in rutted road and Rocky had told me what to expect so no biggie but I did notice it. Never felt uneasy at any speed or road. Tried to hit man hole covers and tar snakes and still felt great. My only regret is NOT mounting it on my chrome wheel...Did very tight circles in parking lots and still able to do them. I am SOLD...
