  • What is the Lean Angle of the Road Star?

    I am practicing figure 8's in a 18 x 36" box. I noticed this video the Harleys are great with the 18" turns. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRbvejZK1ig I can do a 18' U turn with the RS no problems but just started practicing figure 8's in the 18 x 36" box. The Road King has a 32 degree lean angle vs the Heritage with a 29 degree lean angle. How does the Road Star compare? Thanks.

          straight roads are for fast bikes, curves are for fast riders.

          Doh! It is 2 parking spaces x 2. 2 spaces are 18' wide, The video explains it better than me. For chuckles and giggles lock the bars and do a 180-degree turn. The bike will turn under 18 feet. My guess is a Harley has a bit better turn rate than the Road Star. No big deal. The Road Star is nimble enough as is.

          OK, I guess you want, like, scientific data, degree angles and the like. I can only tell you what happens on my bike, as it is the only RS I ever rode:

          Lean to the right: Not the greatest.

          Lean to the left: Totally sucks ass.

          I hope this helps.

              Not all of us have the big brass 'orbs' that you have, DK.

              Hang your heels over the back of your floorboards when the heel touches they're just like curb feelers in East LA. Sing it like Cheech and Chong. Born in East LA I was born in East LA.....,
