Hi. I took a test ride this afternoon. I'm seriously considering an RTS. Nice machine. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.
I have some comments and one big question that I would really appreciate some feedback on.
The machine takes some getting used to. Most of it I'm sure will easily come in time. For instance, I found myself wandering over the yellow line a bit. At stops, I had difficulty resisting putting a foot down. Stopping with only the foot brake is also an adjustment. All of these, I'm comfortable I can get used to.
Otherwise, it was very nice. It seemed a bit twitchy around the back roads, but pretty much straightened out well on the highway.
But cornering.....I kept tying to lean into a turn, and that is just bad. How long does it take to get used to that ? If I buy a Spyder, it will most likely be in the next week.
I currently ride an ST1100, and I'm planning a trip to the Dragon in Mid April. Obviously, I need to be comfortable on the Spyder before I get to Deals Gap.
Any feedback or techniques that would help me get used to cornering would be greatly appreciated.
