Here we have the proper recovery technique for a gentle high speed oscillation. Notice the rider gets out of the saddle to add weight to the front suspension to settle the oscillation. Next, he shifts his weight to the right side of the bike to counter the weave - and then pops back into the saddle to motor off happily!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Fa0GmdSN4A&NR=1Enjoy!
The I5 most any place has to be the worst road in the US.Bare
I have a 2011 C5. I haven never dealt with any of the high speed issues that folks have been talking about. It's sporting the Avons that come stock with that model of bike and I have done no mods to the suspension etc. The ONLY time things have ever been weird at all was a few months after getting the bike and I took it out on I-44 and had her up in the high 70's and I hit a stretch of the highway that had those wonderful rain grooves. There was a slight oscillation/wobble. Now at this point with over 5000 on the clock I get none. And that is with having her out on 44 doing 80 as well. This bike is also my FIRST motorcycle and I have found it to be nothing but nimble and easy to ride, very stable and extremely forgiving. Throwing on a free flowing exhaust and air filter did a lot to make the power that the bike's engine produces much more useful. So yeah, I guess I get a bit confused when I hear folks talking about all kinds of stability issues with their C5s
