The Fury must be longer and lighter but they are both very maneuverable. I haven't ridden the Furry since 2010 but I remember I was impressed.

oops... just checked the Furry is 30lbs. heavier.

you feel the increased flexibility when moving around on the bike as well? More comfortable when shifting weight about no, easier to "hang" off the bike (although theres not much hanging on a cruiser I think you get what Im getting at )

DO you find a difference at all with acceleration and stuff too. 30 lbs is pretty significant? It might be fun for you to try to figure out how shedding some pounds has increased the performance of your bike.

I'm a skinny dude, and I can imagine it being harder to ride if I had a bit more girth.

Once on the bike and going over 20mph 30 lb. means very little.
