Any handling questions that weren’t answered on our ascent of the Sierras above Lone Pine were surely dealt with during an epoch coasting race that deposited us in a giggling, slipstreaming, freight train back on the valley floor. The Classic won handling praise, as did the Springer. Both have light, precise steering at moderate velocities (which is fast enough on any of these big twins). The Low Rider is stable, accurate and secure in the corners, and also has the corner on stopping power, with a pair of slightly sudden, but powerful front discs. The rest have single front discs that are adequate but far from dazzling, particularly while descending. The Intruder and Vulcan 1500 get through the turns just fine, too, though the Suzuki’s steering is a bit less linear, and the Kawasaki’s suspension allows a touch more bob and weave than the others.
