I Figured you younger guys would think it a little large, but I spent my college riding days becoming one with a 82 CB650 Nighthawk sporting a Vetter Rooster fairing (pretty similar in protection to the above windscreen) I put at least 60,000 miles on that rig (probabably 10,000 of which was the same twisty road down and bake to the lake in Manhattan, KS,) and I guess I just got used to the larger windscreen (its a lot more modest than the one on my 76 CB750F, it has a Windjammer!) Actually, the reason I bought the 919 is that it is the only new bike I found that had the same basic riding position that my old Nighthawk had, and I felt at home on it the instant I sat in the saddle. It's just faster, quicker, lighter (way lighter!) handles better, and stops better.
By the way, I read back over my post, and it might seem that I inferred there was instability above 130mph. That's just how far I've tested it, and it felt extremely stable at that speed, and was still accelerating in 6th gear. I just don't have a good enough place to test above that speed, and I went to jail for going too fast on my Nighthawk back in '87and don't intend to repeat the experience.
