Default Comparison info needed

Hiya All,

Was wondering if anyone has had riding experience on both a Jackpot and a Hammer? I've ridden for years on other types of bikes and my 08 JP seems really light on the front end when i'm on the highway. I'm fine turning with the big rear tire but I'm thinking the Hammer's thicker front tire would 'feel' like i'm holding onto the road better.
Anyone with similar experience. I love the look of my JP but I'm thinking that the Hammer might be better suited for me. Just want to know what others think.
thanks in advance,
Mike

Jackpot is more fashion, Hammer is more function.

With the Hammer you get 2 front brake rotors, inverted forks, and an 18" 130mm front tire.... As opposed to the single disc, conventional forks, and skinny 21" front tire of the Jackpot.

You should go ride a Hammer and see.
