You're probably right. I think all the whinners traded them in on a Gold Wing and now they are whining about why nobody asks them about their bikes anymore.

OK I'll do a little bitchin for ya (not whining) How about an 09 RG with a high/low speed wobble in the front. Comming off a mountain with the wife on the back and full up luggage at 60-35 and the front shaking like all get out is not fun. The dealer in Korea told me it was just a little wobble. They had to adjust the fall away on the neck bearings. Haven't had a chance to get in the mountains to check it again. My other Gripe is a clunky sounding transmission and a hell of a 5th gear whine. Other tha that hell of a nice ride, compared to my 125 CI Fatboy.

I feel totally left out. My 09 SG runs strong and smooth. It's the best bike I've ever owned. I love the way it handles on the superslab and in the curves. No clunky tranny, no wobbling, the 103" Stage II kit runs great and on and on. No probs with the fly-by-wire throttle or anything else. 4K miles this year and it just seems to get better.

Could be you were over gross and had the front end too light. T.

I thought the same but it did it with just the rider and passenger on it, and the shocks aired up per the factory owners manual.
