Fork seals sticking question

I was just reading a review on the 929 where they mentioned "fork seals sticking" causing handling problems. Is this a common problem with this bike or it's another one of these write ups where they complain just to fill space on the magazine....?

anyone experiencing this problem?

The forks on the 929 do suffer from stiction to some extent. I don't think it's a cause for handling problems though. Dan Kyle polishes the tubes which helps reduce the stiction problem greatly.
