The rear tire on my '09 is just a bit smaller than the front tire of my Road Star-I definitely know what your talking about as far as comparing other bikes.
But you gotta think of it like comparing the nerve endings in your fingertips versus those in your elbows...you're just getting more sensitive feedback... However, the hole I saw today has been etched in my mind like a GPS waypoint for the next time I'm out on the ninja!
You should also check out David L Hough's book, STREET STRATEGIES. "Edge traps", the condition you describe, are nasty little buggers that can ruin your day!
