These bikes handle so much better than the general motorcycle population would think.

They do indeed, turn in is precise and you can change lines mid corner with confidence. I was running bumpy, twisty mountain roads at triple digit speeds with the stock suspension without issue. If I hang off far, I can minimize dragging the hard parts. Someone should make rear sets for this machine.
