I am considering buying an '07 1098 (love that bike!!!). I have always drove Harleys and stayed away from sportbikes because of a healthy "respect" (okay, they scared the crap out of me..) for their power. I suppose most of all, my concern over keeping the front wheel down. I finally took the "sportbike" plunge and bought an S2R 1000 earlier this year. I was pleasantly suprised of how well it handles and how much fun it is compared to cruiser-type bikes. Would the 1098 handle more like a Japanese sportbike (...front won't stay down) or the Monster? And, I don't plan on racing the bike, so how is it for weekend enjoyment. Thanks!
