I am glad you are alive to post your concerns. I mean no harm. How do you steer. Do you pull on the bar, or do you position your weigh like one does on a hack (sidecar rig). You must use countersteer to manage the big bird. if you try and control it with your weigh it will ignor you when traction forces overwhelm weight distradution- ie it will stand up. Blackbird owner´s forums are full of stories like yours, so are kawi zx12 groups, and hayabusa clubs. Big powerfull bikes require deliberate countersteer. If you had had the bike for a while longer i´m sure you would have come around to that certainty. To say the big bird is dangerious is to suggext that all motorcycles are. On one point I am in full agreement about LBS. In the dirt, be it a turnout, or a wrong turn that lands you on an unpaved road, it is totally dreadful, I say that ten miles of gravel road would dump 90% of the best riders I know, and I know some very good rider, dirt, street, and track.
