Out on the road, it takes but a corner to feel the difference in this new chassis. Steering is much more precise and the weavy hip-shake the previous touring models used to get in fast, bumpy sweepers is gone. Suspension tune is surprisingly taut and controlled. Mild inside-bar pressure holds the Glide on its cornering line, and trail-braking doesn't "steer" the bike, which is just right. "That is a pet peeve of mine—the brakes can't affect steering," said Weber. He added that they tune the chassis so that inside bar pressure is a means of giving the rider better front-end feedback. I asked if they had a figure, a spec for the amount of pressure. "Yes, we have a spec..." he said with a grin. Oh, secrets!
