Apparently the 950/990 Adventurer's can even be worse, hard to imagine...
There were a few times yesterday I thought the bike and I were going to swap positions. I'm sure a FJR would be a lot more stable. Of course, today I went through a few corners at speeds I doubt a larger bike would handle as well. That's not to say the FJR is a slouch in the handling department. Lighter bikes are typically more confidence inspiring. All bike have there pluses and minus.
