The R is *definitely* a hoot-- basically a 600 lb. sport bike. Especially if you tune the engine, get rid of the boat anchor H-D laughingly calls an exhaust, and reworking the front fork and rear shocks.

That being said, doing all of the above to an F makes for a pretty hair-raising ride as well; it does just fine in the twisties-- enough that I had to change out to pegs that gave me more clearance.

Either way, you can't go wrong.

The only real issue with the R is parts. The F is a right bear to find parts for, but it's a walk in the park compared to an R!

Just my 0.02.
