Just Added Suburban Machinery BarBacks...
My reasons for doing so can be seen in the "I Give Up" thread.
Now that the SMs are on the bike, I took a ride this evening, and it is different, but I'll be darn if I can tell exactly how. The strange thing is, if I want to, I can lean forward enough so my belly (a rather large one) almost touches the tank. This is not something I could do when the bars where all the way down. This surprised me.
Rode some twisties and do notice a difference in handling. Again, hard to put in words, but it felt not quite as nimble. Not bad, but not as effortless as with the bars all the way down. My imagination, or normal with the SMs?
Tomorrow will be a better test, going for a 200 mile trip, but my first impressions, were "something is different, but I don't know what."
Anyone else have a weird first experience with the SMs, or is it just me?
