I guess you never got to ride with the v max guys at the MAM. They can dust a "9" in the twisties!
I would hope so. I did'nt say it wouldn't race on 9 in the twisties did I!! I was just saying they are not known for the cornering.

BMW S1000RR. I couldn't stand to ride one very far, but I would love every second I was on it.

Like wrapping your legs around a small block!

My bud has a 2011 and I rode it and while it has power does not feel as well built as my 07 M109R and it sounds weird... like not right weird. Top heavy.

and talk about a ankle cooker! :eek:

Not trading anymore. Wife told me to buy another bike and keep the 9. Thanks for all the input.

Its so nice of you to dig out almost
nine yrs. old post.. nevertheless so true...
Ha ha, I ought to look at the dates on the posts. I came close to buying the new Rocket III a year ago last March. They were firm on charging for shipping and setup, yet their advertised price didn't include the extra charges. They wouldn't budge and I wouldn't budge...then Covid hit and I was glad that I didn't buy the bike.

Old school maybe, but I sold my Honda VFR1200F DCT and regret selling a lot. Amazing bike V4 power is just fantastic. I owned two Hayabusa before, loved them too, but I would say moving from an m109r, look around for a VFR1200F in great condition, you'll love it.
