The 06 has Continental Road Attacks on it... a lay over from the previous owner. I am wanting to switch over to some Pilot Powers since they seem to fit my needs on the street really well. I think the Road Attacks are harder in the middle than the Pilot Powers but probably not harder than the Pilot Roads I rode on for several months on the 03...
well, there might be your answer...different tires, different feedback from the bike. well assuming that the suspensions are about the same.
