You posted to imply a C-10 is a meh bike. There is no meh is that bike, my friend, other than the color. And the vast majority of riders do not know enough to see any cornering advantage in the smaller / lighter bike.
Brad's right. It may be a big heavy bike, but the thing is a fucking monster when the tach starts heading to the midway point. (6K)
This is one motorcycle that I'm going to have a hard time letting go when it's time, and I'll probably regret doing so when I do.
It's the most fun motorbike I've had to date, and the one I've racked up the most miles and smiles on without a doubt.
