I've got the same problem with my Repsol, my neck and legs hurt the next day after riding it. I dragged my boots and pegs a few times when I got my 900, too. I have to remind myself that it's a cruiser and slow down on the curves.Cheers guys. It does rain alot here so it will be random rides when I can.
Yep they are beautiful roads to ride - dangerous too but Im taking back seat and my 120mph+ days are behind me.
The gixxer was painful - anything longer than a 20 min ride and the wrists were aching - go over an hour and your whole body began to sieze up.
I'll miss taking off from the lights like a rocket ship but glad to back on a twin - had an SV 1000 before which I regretted trading in for the GSXR.
Have only clocked up about 10 miles on the VN and the handling is tricky - had a scare or two going round a corner - foot was down too! But the nice V twin torque and a nice note from the pipes (to be revised) makes it all worth while and I'll get used to the other stuff.
When I bought my Custom the salesman told me that one of his colleagues had been riding one on a demo day, dragged the right peg into a pothole and ended up down the road, leaving the bike spinning on its pipes ... they had to replace the whole exhaust but fortunately there was no other real damage done to bike or rider.I dragged my boots and pegs a few times when I got my 900, too.
