Review Title: most fun bike i have ever ridden!

I got my superhawk about 2 months ago. it's actually a 98 not 99 but who cares. If you have never ridden a big v-twin you are missing a whole new experience! I rode my friend's RC-51 and I knew I wanted a V-twin. no need for extreme horsepower, this bike has massive torque from about 3500 rpm's. roll on in any gear and you can feel it... the handling is not the best of the bikes I've ridden but it's very forgiving and feels light and easy despite it's heave dry weight specs. I did a track day on it at Road Atlanta and handling was surprisingly good though ground clearance did become a problem. This would probably never be an issue on the street though. I got a sharkskinz lower, seat cowl and dropped one tooth on the front sprocket (gearing is tall which makes your clutch hand tired riding around town or in traffic) but no complaints here... I love it and would recommend it to anyone
