The handling on this bike is FANTASTIC! Especially after changing over to RADIAL tires (Had to swap in a 17" rear rim to make the switch). It is well balanced, has an excellent riding position, and you would never know it's almost 500lbs in weight.
This bike is pretty quick. Sure, there are other bikes out there that are much faster (now) but it's never had a problem getting a grin on my face.
The seating position on the Interceptor is great. I am out 5-6 hours at a time, and I don't get cramped up like others. Wrists aren't killing me either.
There's allot of negative press out there about this model having bad or pitted cams. I can't speak for others, but the cams in my bike are in great shape (especially if you consider it's over 25 years old!). Don't have an oil mod, but DO run 100% synthetic oil.
Overall I've had ZERO problems with the Interceptor and would recommend it to anyone.
Great bike. So great it started the whole sportbike thing.
Two thumbs up.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I would like to know which radials and which wheel kit was used for the switch?
