    think highspeed death-wobble.

    They are not nearly as bad as the rep they seem to have. I have yet to experience even a minor one,.. and know lots of riders who feel the same. Not to mention that it is easily curable with a damper.

    Yes, it is easy for these things to be blown out of proportion--especially by people who have never ridden one!

    Ask those of us you have spent any time on one and you will probably find out that tankslappers are not common at all. And in fact, a lot of people who experience minor headshake call it a tankslapper--they are NOT the same thing. This just propogates the infamy of the 929, which is too bad because it may disuade people from buying a bike they would be very happy with.

    As far as your choice is concerned, try them both out and let your heart decide.
