Went from a GSX 600r to a Road King. Not as far forward as many cruisers. Took a while to get accustomed to it. Now, I am beginning to truly rip along (for a Harley anyway). Hard edged bumps can be a problem, otherwise nice and comfy. With the right seat, which is highly subjective, it can be very comfortable.
Because it is my bike and I like it that way!
