My #3 son just turned me on to this sight. Gives riding positions for different motorcycles. Like: forward lean, knee angle, and hip angle. And you can do an overlay for each of your bikes to see the riding position. Just thought it was kinda kool. 8-) Only thing it doesn't go back to 1923 for the first BMW huumm.

TC :
That is very, very cool !
It appears that most Wings , including the 1100/1200's are equally comfy .


( Which I always thought, after sitting on many many bikes at any Motorcycle trade show )

Most of my old tractors were pretty rough riding and almost impossible to get comfortable .got the gl1200 with floor boards and up front foot boards . if I ride more than 2-300 miles my butt gets a bit numb but can go all day with no issues so far its my most comfortable bike but am sure there are much better .

Num Butt? You're supposed to get off once in awhile and stretch your legs. I used to put 400 mile days on my BMW. But that was cause that's how far away my son lived. :shock: I dont do rain unless caught in it, dont do 400 mile days. Dont do 100 deg day if I dont have too. In other words, a fair weather rider. And enjoying the ride. :lol:
