99 legend

We bought a 99 legend a few month ago road it a couple of times so far. It is going to be the wives bike mainly and mine for fun. I ride a honda vtx 1800 right now. It's a fun bike but slow turning radius on it isn't that good. But I liked the ride i took on it though

I bought my 1999 Legend TT from a friend last December. I've put about 6,000 miles on him. (I named him Fearless - he's not skeered, but I am.) It handles the mountain twisties like a dream come true, and you're right, the turning radius is limited because of the radiator. However, he turns plenty sharp to handle tight U-turns. It's a WONDERFUL bike! The main drawback for me is I'm afraid of it's speed and power. You really need to wind him out, and he's a fast bike. Not for the faint hearted!
