Thanks! Will post a pic or two once my first few mods are done (removal of some decals, flat-black painting of small rear cowl exhaust covers, and smoke windshield installation).
Sure, I'd agree with that for the most part. Definitely a more crouched position than the 250. Much of "comfort" though is subjective, I have a lean build and I'm limber (years of aikido & ju-jitsu back in the day) so that will help quite a bit too.Not the bike I would pick for commuting, I'd prefer the 250.. but you'll get a kick out of the power.
Gotta' respectfully disagree with you on both points above man, although I do appreciate your input.Taste is subjective, Comfort is objective.
The effects of posture on comfort is small compared to ergonomics of the bike. There is only so much you can do by adjusting your butt and back. I've yet to hear of a rider who does not find up right ergonmics more comfortable across the board.
Ya to me the ergonomics on that bike seemed a bit more aggressive than the CBR.. Beautiful bike though, just doesn't "fit" me as well as the 600rr.tried the gixxer?
I had the same issue with every other ss I tested out - tank into my knees. CBR600 had some room to spare for me as well.The GSXRs seemed to also have a wider tank at my knees, which I didn't care for compared to the CBR. And the CBR is the only one of the three which has ABS.
Some before & after photos I took last weekend, brought her inside for first set of mods. Much better than working in cold bike shed outside!Post a pic when you stop by.
