That person at the dealer sounds incredibly ignorant, and not good at their job.The dealer I spoke with said the Fury is a bike that is meant to drive straight. After watching some videos most say it handles really well. Do you guys think it's a mistake to use this as a bike to commute? How do you all like the handing. How often do you scrape your pegs...is that an issue.
The Fury is comfortable and capable.
I drag the foot pegs only when getting after it very hard. “Spirited” riding isn’t enough to make them touch. Yes, other bikes have more rear end suspension but Fury has plenty unless you’re intentionally hitting big obstacles (and assuming you know your commute well you’d know the bigger obstacles to avoid).
I’m not saying Fury would be my first recommendation for commuting, simply saying I would not think for a second to tell someone it would be bad for commuting—especially with the good parking in the city you have.
