Hey RedWing, I was looking at the naked bikes like the Ducati Diavel, Triumph Triple RS, Kawasaki Z1000, and the Yamaha MT10. I used to race sport bikes back in the 80's and was looking for a better handling bike with more power, but did not want an uncomfortable race bike as I'm 55 now. I had 4 Harleys including a V-rod and my last bike which was a Low Rider S with the 110 engine. I was never satisfied with the handling. Liked the V-rod's engine but it did not like turning. My last bike had better handling and good torque out of the 110, but sounded like a bucket of rattling bolts. Changed the lifters to S&S, but made no difference. It had a knock at 2500rpm to 3200rpm. HD dealer could find nothing wrong. Felt like it was destroying itself. My new CB engine is so smooth compared to the HD engines. Handling is awesome!
