I know right?!! Every time I get to a corner with my HD I have to get off the damn thing, pick the whole bike up over my head (there's an owners strength training course when you sign up with your local HOG chapter ) and physically point it in a new direction. This task is exacerbated by the fact that it takes miles for it to slow down on account of barely functioning brakes!! ...And if you run over an earth worm or worse yet, a small crack, pebble or carelessly discarded Viagra medicine cap (very common on HD traveled routes especially between bars) ?! WATCH OUT because the suspension will do it's best to throw you off the bike!!
Still totally worth the $70k I spent on chrome, bar end tassels and custom chaps......
