Sensitive frontwheel !
on: May 25, 2013, 08:33:59 AM
Here on the Belgian coast a lot of railways on road from tram

Yesterday on my way to work i was stuck in the railway and it was raining.
i could happily stay in control speeding at 60km/h
it was realy a fight to stay on two wheels at that moment  :005:
On my ST1300 never had such an incident in 10 years riding on different roads even in Corsica  :164:
Just want to warn that the front wheel of the CT is sensitive

I think what you are feeling is the 19" front wheel transmits a lot back to the wide bars on this style of bike and the steering head angle, I don't think it is unique to the CT as my previous GS gave the same feedback

Just takes a little getting used to after a smaller front wheel
