Depending on the moment's mission, most of the suspensions drew praise or criticism. Only the Honda suspension provides both a compliant ride over bumps and steady handling in sweeping corners. Revised rates in the Harley give it stone-steady handling in smooth corners, and it out-scored the other seven in twisty-road competence. However, its tautness and limited travel turned into a liability when the road was bumpy. It delivered the harshest ride in this group, and big bumps in corners required a degree of circumspection. The Suzukis, Kawasakis and Yamaha, have softer suspension, which provides significantly smoother passage over rough spots, but also allow those machines to wallow in fast, sweeping corners. The Vulcan 750 and Intruder were the worst in this regard. The Intruder exhibits the most chassis flexibility, and the VN750 has the least effective damping, which lets the suspension continue to pump after encountering a bump or other load in a corner. This shortage of damping makes these bikes wallow. The softness of the suspension, particularly on the Virago, and to a lesser degree the Vulcan 750, leave you with little suspension travel after you load a passenger onto the back seat.
