Well I finally drove it home yesterday! and I had a hell of an experience, I was in town, brought her out of town, seemed like a normal bike, the front seemed a little heave to me turning a tight turn slower, but when I got into the merge lane to get on the highway i was increasing speed and got hit by a gust of wind, and wow it was like the bike wobbled, might have been me over compensating since it has been awhile since on a bike, like at least 3 years and a big one since 2000.It's been two days. Did you make it home in one piece? How are the brakes doing now?
Well i stabilized my wife also said it moved the little chevy trax we had as she was following me, but i was so scared as it seemed the wind would really affect his bike, so bad i dove 45-55 all the way home on a 70mph Hwy. Just had a semi pass me on the left and it really was moving that bike, i never had that on my Venture royal like that, unless the winds were that bad yesterday.. but i looked at my weather station and it was like only 12mph..
So I was reading and this windshield on this thing is just huge, and also it has a bunch of air wing's deflectors on the sides even on the side mirrors, and I read one guy had exactly the same problem with his as mine, he had the fear of god in him but he was doing like 70-75, i was only doing maybe 55..hihe took the kuryakins off and it was fine.
So nto to happy a little wind unless it was more than what we thought affect it like that, seemed balanced otherwise, it only has 25k on it does not look beat up or used..
But I'm thinking those did deflectors or that huge windshield.. it has new tires basically, the only other problem i had was using this toe heel shifter, just weird to me... nto alot of room with the engine guard and a floorboard lol ..or I'm just not use to it..
