After riding my XR 20k miles in 2 years on my commute, the V feels rock solid. Not as solid as other street bikes I have owned, but compared with the XR... well there is no comparison.
It does move like the XR does just not nearly as bad, so I am really use to riding with wind moving me all over the place. I have ridden the V on 62, probably the windiest hwy in So Cal. It feels like crap, but I don't think the bike is in any danger of loosing control. Biggest trick I learned specially on the XR is relax and let the bike float, like riding sand. The tighter your grip the worse it gets.
