Would have never thought of the difference that way. They both ride a little different, but not "that" different. ...

I rode my Ultra Limited 2 up today. Very stable riding at speed in the Twisties.

It's wonderful alright, but I'm not taking your opinion on that based on your test ride. And exactly how does one ride a bike 'like a bagger'? You wouldn't find one RK rider here say anything that weird.

if he means get on and ride 11 hours a day from point to point comfortably, then I'm in agreement, it rides like a bagger.
