I have been looking at the Tour II and some of its "competition". One concern I had was with the linkage steering and the difference in touring radius from bikes with direct steering. Has this been an issue for those who own a Tour II? The local dealer did not have an unsold Tour II that I could ride, but did have a used Cruiser that I tried out. After having to do a 3-point turn to change directions in a wide driveway (even while jamming the handlebars into my thighs), I started to rethink my choice of bike models. But I did notice on the TT website in the Model specifications charts that the turning radius of a Cruiser or Tour was 9.5 feet, while the turning radius of a Tour II is 6.25 feet. Were there significant changes in the Tour II that resulted in this improvement, or maybe just a new method of measurement? Thank you!
Having test "drove" a Sportster, the Cruiser, and a Catrike Trail, I will probably wait and try out a Tour II before deciding. But I was curious about what others had experienced.
