I don't know how large a man you are, but between most of your body weight plus the motor so high, that is a lot of mass so high above the center of gravity.
Just curious as to how it feels on slow tight turns is all.
I am 6-1 200lbs. The way it was explained to me in a Golden Eagle Bike Engine thread, the rider's own center of gravity is already above the seat, and the motor's 14 pounds is not going too affect things much. There are stability issues when it's parked though. I need a chainstay kickstand, the kind that mounts near the rear axle.
