Do the bar backs cause the bike to feel any slower in turning in the twisties?
I rode a little over 1200 miles to the Winter Rally in Fla. this weekend and at times felt like bar backs would have been nice. However my greatest joy is riding in the mountains. If bar backs are going to diminish the feel or ability to hustle around the curves I don't want them.

I have a set of MV Bar-backs on the way. They're 40mm straight back and should make my Corbin seat perfect. I also like throwing the bike into a turn and if they diminish my enjoyment of doing that they will be gone. I won't get them on till after Daytona so figure around mid March. They (bar-backs) always look funky to me - like they would screw up the front end geometry, but if you look at some of the stock risers that we're seeing on many new bikes many of them look like factory bar-backs. It would be interesting getting feedback on how they feel, but you would have to know how the person rides and (IMHO) the only way to do that is to ride with them.
