Thanks so much for the support, vmax people and motorcyclist in general are in a class of their on for sure !
I love my VMax but compared to my old Goldwing it rides like a plank. Its just the nature of the Beast and you have to get used to it.

Will try settings on shocks as I know there on stiffest setting now for my wife which was not on the bike at wobble speed.

Amen to that ! But the torque is my anxiety med and I love it. On an open road of course.

Speaking of front tires, how do you guys think a 100/90/18 would be on the front of a 2001 VMax? Too skinny or OK? I might get one just because it would match the Pirelli MT66 Route that I just put on the back.
Ive run 100/90/18 & 140/90/15 Metzler 880's for over 10 years. I do a lot of canyon carving and have found the easy turn in to be most comfortable. You can check out my pics to see them in action at steep lean angles. I got used to the feeling and never looked back.
