So I really like the concept of the 80's honda sabre. Powerful V4 engine, standard bike ergo's, physically big, 5.8 gal tank. I think it would be a solid base for a cheap well performing sport touring machine. But I've read a lot of reviews bad mouthing the handling of the bike. How bad is it? Compared to other bikes? I see the rake is 30 degrees, pretty lazy, will any amount of suspension/tire swaps from newer bikes make it up to par? Say to get it to handle as well as an modern FJR1300? I've found that rider size will completely change how well people think a bike handles, and how heavy it 'feels'. I'm 6'2" and not a lightweight. Are the reviews of it handling heavy a result of smaller test riders?
