My personal garage as far back as i can remember:
Triumph Speed Triple R
Triumph Explorer (1215cc)
Ducati Hypermotard 1000
Ducati Biposto Sport 1000 Cafe Racer
Ducati Multistrada 1200S
Ducati Diavel Carbon
Honda Goldwing 1800
Honda Silverwing 600
Suzuki GSXR1000 2005 Race prepped
As you can tell , NONE of those bikes were even close to a custom/bobber style bike - so that is why the handling was alien to me.
The closest would be the Diavel. But honestly that bike handled like a sport bike and i would have had another if it were not for the silly feet forward position they put on the new model. The Ducati Sport 1000 was akin to a torture rack, but looked and sounded beautiful.
My Goldwing has a Full Monty Traxxion Dynamic suspension upgrade, as i could not stand the OEM setup.
For this reason i changed the Bobbers rear to a FOX before even trying the OEM shock, as i was pretty sure i would need to stiffen the rear.
