One of the reasons why I decided against buying the new K-bike (K1200R in fact) was the lousy low speed handling. I still don't see why they need to put a steering damper on them, much less a non-adjustable one that is tuned too tight and makes the bikes wander at low speeds. Add that to the 500+lbs of the bike and you will have a handful of a street bike when you're on the street instead of the highway.
