Why don't these folks ever mention the saddle height? I've had several taller bikes like that and found them too difficult to handle in the city. My 1500 Gold Wing was the worst. With the 1200 I cut a lot of padding out of the seat to make it narrower. These style of bikes don't lend themselves to such modifications. But knowing what to expect would be helpful. I'm 5'3" with 28" inseam so even my pants need updating.
I believe on a quiet night,
I can hear the fish laughing.
