A lot of truth in this thread!
Ive had both, JP (2), & now my 2nd Hammer.
Ride a big rear tyre bike then u betta up your cornering "Concentration rate". Hammer or JP, they both will drift out without the negative steer, and one learns very quickly to force it sometimes. But that can be exhilarating toooo! Ride hard & mean it.

Anyone had both.
I believe yes! The fatter/smaller front wheel does make the Hammer slightly easier to mix it in the twisty's. I've put Ness Pull backs on every Vic I've owned, just right for me!

Hear, Hear! Been scared & swear @ myself LOUDLY!
But if you like flinging the bike around then you really dont have to think about the it with the Vegas/HighBall. !80/55 & 80/90 21" works great.
Love my Hammer
