    I remember a post recently about front end wobble on a TA....more specifically, I think it was on a 700, and various owners seemed to think it was almost inevitable... Anyway, in the interests of security I have two U Locks- one is a Kryptonite New York mini, which weights in at a shade over...

It is not the most stable because the bike, when put on the centre stand, sits rather close to the centre stands changeover point (difficult finding the correct words, I hope it's clear what I mean), it reduces ground clearance and it...
