Summary:

Needs to lose 350 lbs

Faults:

Nothing wrong - just sub par handling. I am looking to either spend 1K-to 4.5K on handling upgrades, or selling it and buying a BMW RT 1200.

General Comments:

Great on long freeway drives - just don't look for curvy roads - the front end moves so much it is not stable (I did not have this issue with either of my prior GL1200A's)

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No
