I am not suprised at all. I find it the most comfortable bike I've ever owned as well. I remember conversations in the late 90's when all the older riders complained that there were no good bikes that didn't have clip ons. It was a hard search looking for comfort AND performance. The 1st gen naked streetfighters made a step forward and as riders have aged we now have bikes with comfort, adjustability, power, and great handling. It's great except for the glitches.I use them exclusively. My feet are only forward 12-14” from stock so I’m not leaned back, I’m sitting square down on the seat and my legs are out of the engine heat. That’s a real bonus!
Now this is going to be hard to believe but this bike is the most comfortable of all time. The GT is billed as a Sport Touring bike, emphasis on Sport. I have the best of both worlds and is probably why I have almost 60k in less than 2 years of ownership. I couldn’t ride this bike for long without the modifications to the seat, the foot position, the bar risers, the windshield and the auxiliary handgrips. I know, it seems like a long way to go but I’m there and it’s a beautiful thing.
