Default Saw the Green Gunner today

I was at the Demo truck event at Full Throttle in Dimondale today and they had the Green Gunner on the demo rides. To tell you the truth I'm not sure about it. It must be the metalic that throws me. Maybe it would look better just solid green.

Sorry, I didn't take my camera and you would not like the pictures my flip phone takes.

Were you able to ride a demo Gunner to compare to yours handling-wise?

Should it ride differently because it's green?

Uhhhh, no.

The OP posted a thread about the handling of his Gunner. I was curious if the demo bike exhibited the same behavior.

They never went on the highway so I didn't bother to ride it. My bike only does this on the highway at 70-80 mph.

Gotcha... Didn't see the connection from this thread to another one.

Just about all the naked bikes I had would get a little loopy at 70/80,
With the exception of my [ex] Bussa, But you ride the Bussa low on the tank.. My [ex] VTX 1800c would act the same way till I put on a tall Memphis Shade wind shield, Then I could smoke a cigar at 70.
Without the ''Proper fitting Shield/Fairing''' at those speeds your body cuts though the air like an outhouse on wheels...

My Highball naked, was rock solid to 100mph. Other than the fact you could only comfortable ride that way for 30mins without getting extremely tired. Easily cruise at 75mph for an hour or two at a time though. I topped my Highball out at 150mph before feeling like I would be ripped right off the bike and become a human kite.
