How little are the Scorpio's

  1. My XVS 650 is in for a service today and got a loan bike, a scorpio. How weird riding something soo light... i feel like i am going to break the damn thing and my road presence is much less then my larger crusier... interesting experience, also, how easy are those things to turn!!!

    First time riding in peak hour traffic - and it had to rain! (I am a learner and tend to ride just on weekends or nights - use a company car throughout the day). Quick way to build confidence.
  2. Yep cruisers are cool but you need to steer them more than a bike with less rake and you get to countersteer which is totally intuitive.
  3. Ride to work every day would be a quicker way to build confidence.
