Yeah, I've ridden a few of them. It's not easy, so that's why I give you props for being able to do it.

I rode the Honda Fury again recently and was again surprised by how friendly the foot position was. Instead of being way forward it was more like a mid control position. Like an old FXR. I got used to that pretty quickly.
I guess my big problem is with (very) forward controls.
