You know, my brother has the SWB version of my bike and I actually get a little uneasy with it. The seat and euro bars have me feeling like I'm hovering or looming over the bike and for some reason it feels a bit squirrely in anything that's not a corner. Might just be because I'm so use to the r90 feeling like its almost on rails.

I'll find a putty knife and some too gone tomorrow!
