Intersting you say that. Having just installed 4 inch apex risers there is a definite learning curve again on lean vs counter steer vs speed to learn again. The relationship does change. But the incresed comfort factor wins out for me.
[/QUOTE] I'm back! Made the Dolomites myself, wonderful area.
One thing I did notice is that the Birds riding position makes 'V' hairpins bl..dy difficult, my neck just won't turn far enough.
Sacrilege I know on this forum but I wondered if a more upright riding position would make my life easier if I insist on finding tiny mountain passes.
I even tried out a possibility in Stockach (Nr lake Constance) just before hitting the B500 where the Bird was in its element.
