TT600 balance

I have never ridden a TT600, so I have a question for those of you that own them. I sat on one at the dealership, and it seemed unbalanced. There seemed to bee way too much weight in the front for the bike to balance properly- I felt like if I rode it instead of sitting on the bike and controlling it I would be sitting behind the engine and hanging on for dear life. How does the bike actually balance on the road? how is the handling at speed?

My TT is my first sportbike, so my opinion may be biased, but all I have to do is think turn or move and the bike moves. I find it to be well balanced at any speed with great braking and superior handling. It is light and agile in traffic and I ride it in all kinds of weather.

If it is one thing our bikes have always been praised for, it's the handling.

my speed four feels rediculously have compaired to a cbr or something like that when i'm sitting still, just top heavy i guess, but once i get moving there's no problem at all with weight, and the handling is wonderful, obviously the tt600 isn't going to have the same handling adn weight as a gsx-r, that's what the made the daytona 600 for, but i have no complaints at all, i can take my hands off the handlebars anywhere from 100mph down to about 15mph and ride as long as i want without even the slightest handlebar wobble, i don't know, i haven't been riding 600's for all that long, but i don't have any complaints at all
