Just bought an '07 flstf and noticed front wheel offset about 3/4 of inch from fork. Anyone aware of steering problems with this set up? Seems a bit of a strange design.

On test ride it felt a bit harder to lean to the right but I just chalked it up to inexperience with a new bike. Have read some creepy things about this design out on the internet.

Dont sweat it been this way since 1903 it's the bikes personality

The left side is heavier then the right side by a little. A good alignment of the engine chassis helps greatly, we have a how too here somewhere on alignment

Just enjoy it nothing is wrong :)
