I went to the MG test ride be hosted by some guy..... lol
Anyhow, I was expecting smooth and sporty.
I got unstable and "blah"...
If any revs slipped in while shifting, the bike "felt" as is it was twisting. Not kicking over to one side due to the engine, but actually twisting. It almost felt as is the swing arm needs an additional brace. Now I was mid pack in the ride, so there was absolutely no hotdogging going on, this was just at a less than spirited pace.
Looks wise, I love it!
I read up about it prior to riding it and every write up was good.
Simpson wanted to go just to check this bike out, but couldn't so i did.
When I put my leg over it, everything was perfect for me to like it.
When I fired it up everything was perfect for me to ride it.
When we pulled out of the parking lot, it was a little akward, but I do not buy bike to ride in a parking lot, so I paid it little mind.
When we got out on the road, the "twist" became apperant. This is unacceptable of any bike.
I have ridden the 2300cc Rocket and I can feel the bike torque over (gently) to one side if revved at a light. However once the bike starts to move, it is solid. -- This is far more rotating mass and the bike feels solid, so I am not thinking it is the engine on the Norge.
Somewhere in the linkage/swingarm, something is amiss.
