First of all, let me state that I'm not a novice rider. Been at it for over 25 years. My last bike before picking up an '06 GL1800 was a '86 GL1200 which I rode for 13 years and about 80,000 miles. Interspersed over the last 13 years has also been time on various Harleys (my son's and son-in-law's bikes, etc.), as well as a variety of other bikes.
Let me get to my question. I find low speed maneuvering on the GL1800 to be quite challenging. I realize that the higher centre of gravity vs. the GL1200 has something to do with it and the weight difference also plays a part. Nothing you can do about those two things. But what I also find contributes a lot to my challenge is the low speed throttle response. It's so touchy at low speeds. I guess all that power has to start somewhere but I was wondering if there is any way to soften the low speed throttle response to make low speed maneuvering a bit easier.
Thanks in advance.
