Good question, I had the same concerns. I have a RDL for 3 years now. I have no issues whatsoever being aggressive in twisties and when I hit my favorite, switchbacks.....all day long! no pun intended. My chicken strips are 1/4 inch on my PR4's. It's a higher perch but I still lean over the seat, and it gives me a comfortable feel on the lean. I am not a racer, but I have no issues folding the bike down low on a hairpin. If anything, the RDL has eliminated my butt pain factor and allows me to better concentrate on tasks at hand.
