Twitchy....probably because there's a lot more power than the Hawk has. Take it slow, easy on the throttle adjustments and you'll be fine. Depending on the tires you may or may not have decent grip in turns - tires are the key to grip in the wet...that and the throttle control already mentioned. If you haven't taken a MSF course yet you should also consider that. Lax up on the front braking in the rain also, rear brake should be applied as it produces a more controlled stop. Using too much front brake and locking the front tire will end abruptly in a high-side if you're moving too fast.
