Has anyone experienced this on demo rides?
The standard 1190 has wide radials on wide wheels. If the tires were a little below normal pressure, this is what you'd feel. When the tires wear in the center it gets worse. This is how the 17" motard wheels/tires feel. I don't like it.

I'd prefer the 21/18 wheels and manual suspension knobs. It would be great to have tubeless tires though.
