Same here, agreed.I bought the fury without ever taking it for a test ride. I sat on it and stood her up but that was the extent of it. How pleasantly surprised I was when I finally drove off on the thing. RIDES BEAUTIFULLY! then again it's a honda! You'll love it
besides the stock seat, it will ride like a dream.The ride quality is one thing all the magazines commented on... they were impressed that a chopper can ride so well, corner decently, no wheel flop.
Their biggest complaint was that it was "too smooth". I'll take smooth.
