The sports car and motorcycle enthusiasts on the east coast will know what I'm talking about. :)

The wife and I had our anniversary/vacation down in Tennessee this week. The weather prevented us from taking the bike so we took the STS. Of COURSE I had to take it across the Cherohala and the Dragon. :) The car handled like a 2 ton Miata. The most luxurious roller coaster out there. :grin:

Moonshine Photo got a snap of me. :) I'm trying to decide if I want a print or not, but here's my beast!

Nice...minimal body roll! :D I would like to ride my bike and drive my STS through the Dragon...too bad I live on the left coast.

Yeah, very little roll at all. Since I was driving in motorcycle country and knew there was a good chance I could meet a bike at full lean with his helmet over the line, I never pushed too hard but I did play, especially in the corners I could see through. I never tripped stability and it never felt loose. Neither under or oversteering. AWD feels amazing clawing its way out of a corner at 5k rpm :)

Why...does the STS-V handle better than a 1SG AWD STS? I know its faster, but you are only going to go so fast through the Dragon.

The sts-v has stiffer springs, bigger brakes etc. Whether you would enjoy it more on the dragon is debatable.
