Hi all, thanks for the reply to my last question on upgrading to a larger sportbike.
Now, I have my new-to-me bike home, and noticed something right away rolling her into the garage. The weight displacement is very different fron anything else I have ridden/pushed (pushed really since it is icy out, but moving it to the garage was different), and different from the fzr.
Namley, the weight has a really low center of gravity. We are talking alot of weight, close to 500lbs. Now I can comfortably sit on it, not entirely flat footed but nearly. I am used to that. But, putting it onto the stand made me a little iffy. Almost as if halfway down to the stand I had to let it go of its own momentum. This scares me somewhat. Also, the same idea for gettin it off the stand, the first half is a little hard due to the weight and height.
This only translates into concern for me at a stop/go, or during parking - I am not worried about it on the road. I am sure I will get used to it but it is disconcerting. Any tips or feedback? I am not interested in lowering its not so much a height issue, I am a bitty thing but a strong, 5'6 120 lbs. Like if it stalls suddenly I really do not want to drop the damn bike. Not that I plan to stall, and know the techn to pick it up, just the weight shift is slightly intimidating.
I spent alot of time reading at wominx.com *hope the url is ok to post, sorry if its not* cause tons of small girls there ride massive or at least large sportbikes.
Thanks for being patient with my questions
