I have racked up 12,000 k's on my M50 (first bike) and really like it, but since moving to FNQ I have found roads that have me wanting more. In recent weeks I have riden a supersport (R1), sports tourer (Triumph Sprint) and a bigger cruiser (M109R). The cornering ability of the sports bikes was fantastic, but the riding position (particularly weight on arms/wrists) just wasn't for me. The M109 was fantastic, lazy power, awesome sound, and the riding position that had me leaning more forward than the M50 was very comfortable. But, in the few corners the dealer lead me around I was suprised by what felt like much less cornering clearance than the M50 and heavier handling. I know it's a bigger bike with an obscenely wide rear tyre, but is there a different technique to riding this sort of bike through corners? I expected the M50 to be a bit more nimble through bends, but not that much. If there is a trick to it (shoulder position, weight transfer, countersteering etc) then I think I have found my next bike. Any advice or opinions appreciated.
