Wee wouldn't lean
I rode my freind's 650 last night and noticed something really weird- leaving a parking lot the bike would not lean. I felt like I was driving a train and being guided by rails! I've never felt anything like it before on a bike; like instead of leaning to turn the bike actually had the handlebars turn, like what riding a trike is like, I guess. I didn't have a tire gauge on me, but they weren't visibly showing any sidewall sag. All in all, the tires looked fine, with no weird wear pattern. I rode the bike before and never felt this. Getting up to speed the bike felt fine. Very, very weird. Any ideas?
As a side note, it felt great to feel the smoothness of the 650 over my 1000. But man, now that I got the Power Commander, my bike has great throttle response, power, everything. The 1000 is still more harsh than the 650, but the benefits make up for it. So, just a note on how well the PC worked out for me. Also, I like the 650's mechanical clutch pull vs my hydraulic clutch- much lighter.
