I rode some this afternoon, it sure holds the road better in the wind. It corners really well and is so comfortable. On the Helix I would be on a country road and I would be going 40-45, with the Silverwing I look down and I'm going 50-55 and it feels so smooth. It will still take awhile to get used to the weight when I stop. Filled up for the first time today also. I'm anxious to see what my mileage is after a few fill ups. So thankful spring is here!!!
