If you can explain exactly what you mean with 'surging', I'll tell you
whether mine does it or not :-).

I picked the bike up today, rode to a place that's specialized in
mounting Garmins on bikes to get a RAM mount for my GPS V, and back
with a little detour to show the bike to my gf, all in all a bit over
150 miles. The best description I can give of the handling is 'docile'
- - it does what I want, period. It's a very well-behaved bike. Almost
boring. And I need an exhaust that is not so civilized, I think ;-).
