"what happens to the handling in a cross wind"

We're talking 300kg bike + 100kg rider, don't think the wind has a chance.:biggrin:

"no bottom end torque" A Fatboy has 132 Nm/97.4 ft lbs @ 3250rpm If my maths is any good:unsure: then a Panigale has about the same but @ 9000rpm, there was something very wrong with your Harley.

No bottom end torque!????

No wonder you weren't impressed. Something must have gone wrong. The torque is one of the things I love most about my Harley. Mr B has indulged me with every possible tweak, so I get awesome acceleration. I think we may have gone 1 tweak too far as, without the single seat to stop me, I'd have slid straight off the back long before now. I have had taller gearing fitted this year but it's still a heart stopping experience if you don't take care. Lucky I love a challenge.

As to crosswinds, I don't have solid wheels but the little Sportster is steady as a rock, even down here on the marsh where we grow windfarms.The only difficulty is feeling the wind trying to lift you off the seat. Weird. The BMW, on the other hand, is really dangerous is high winds. It gets blown all over the place. Very scary, sometimes.

i love it

rather loud though but apparently you can buy the baffles as an optional extra, however the garage i use for bikes is run by bikers and they tend to be pretty lenient on loud cans on cruisers although Id say mine was more of a bobber style.

there are some minimalist ones fitted apparently, no idea where and the optional ones only lower it by a couple of decibels so whats the point. Its like a parting of the red sea when Im filtering on the commute though:lol:
