'Tip In" of a roadster......which I also owned and loved but only being a 5 speed.....at 90mph, it was SCREAMING......did handle like the cats PJs tho....IMHO, the best handling HD I have ever ridden off the showroom floor.....All I did was Stage 1 it and try to get the front end to push, just to learn the limits.....she took all I was willing to throw at her
I have to agree with you on the handling. The thing is a point and shoot bike. It is a hoot to ride in the twisties. The sport bike guys are a bit surprised when they see a Sportster pass them.
It is by no means Ducati fast but handles better than any other H-D I've ridden.
My Ducati 999 was much faster and handled better but it wasn't any fun unless you were doing at least a ton. Every time I rode the Duc I was hitting triple digits. I knew one day it was going to catch me so I had to let it go. I have no self control.
The Roadster is a blast at 60-80 in the twisties. I do hit the ton occasionally but I don't need to to have fun on it.
There once was a biker named Double-Fat. Who rode all over like a cafeined gnat.
When he once tried some Frenchy booze, His skills improved the more he wooz'd-
And he was heard to mumble, "Dood- that's where it's AT!"Uncle Ernie-4-24-2011
