However, on windy days, I prefer to be on my heavier RTP. The RTP stays firmly planted with 40MPH winds. I ridden the RTP at 70MPH in a the last tropical storm we had and it was fine. The RTP is also is fine in thunderstorms. It would have been a different story on the GSA.
I got a new Tiger last spring and noticed a big difference on even slightly windy days too. Not sure if it's the ride height or body work. I guess I'm not the only one experiencing this?
