I notice only some slight throbing in the bars. The vibration is not the high frequency buzz associated with a four but more a low frequency throbing. I guess many people think it feels good, it sure didn't bother me. I hope you enjoy a demo ride. I too am very interested in one but will most likely wait a year and a half. I am getting an 89 goldwing and building a new house this fall so funds are a little tight.
