We all love the M109R, and what is the consensus of the MC magazines on the M109R.Has it been more Positive than Negative?
:cus:...........What a joke that is.They like it but some claim it has crappy handling
A good review from a Harley guy!:dontknow:I built a lot of motors for auto magazines over the years and it really depends on who is writing the story and his preferences. If a corner carver who has a GSXR 750 in his garage gets a 109 for a test he is going to say yeah its a great bike for an old guy wannabe to ride to the burger stand show off night. But if you get some guy who has a Harley and has been around the block it might get a pretty good review. Bias is what it is. And yeah advertising money speaks big time. I learned that one the hard way.
:agree::agree: The real question is if you like it? I still smile when I ride her after 4 years.:cus:...........What a joke that is.
All the reviews have been mostly positive that I ever read. But again reviews are totally dependant on the "reviewer" and what his/her personal tastes & motorcycling background is. And the headlight cowl is always a topic for conversation. You either love it or hate it.
I've read quite a few of them (a couple are out this month actually!)The one shootout review I read in MC cruiser mag. seemed like a few of the test riders were Nit Picking about the M109R.Maybe I'm a little sensitive when it comes to the M109R.:dontknow: Other than that, I haven't read too many articles at all about the '9.It would be cool to read all of them actually.
:agree:I bought mine because I fell in love with it when I first saw it. CASE CLOSEDWho cares what moto mags think of the 9. I bought my 9 because I liked it and I wanted it, not because a writer said it was or wasnt a good bike. Others may have an opinion about your bike, but your opinion is the only one that matters.
That's a HUGE joke! I've ridden almost all of the other big cubic inch cruisers and IMO the 9 outhandles them all! The main complaint I see against the 9s handling is the amount of effort it takes to lean it into the turns. This is a load of crap as you get used to it within the first 10 minutes of riding. I love the 9s handling!They like it but some claim it has crappy handling :dontknow:
I have never at any point in time ever thought "Wow this thing is hard to lean over" it's total crap. I think the 240 on the back makes for a pretty solid ride!That's a HUGE joke!
