ergonomics Q

So comparing felt thickness between the legs can someone comment on the differences felt between the RFS bikes and the new 500 model? Is it thinner or thicker when standing? I always felt my RFS bikes were nice and thin and the 08-11 bikes were a lot thicker through the middle. Where does the 500 stack up in comparison?

Has anyone with the HardParts 3.4 gallon tank pictured above on Geeks bike ridden an RFS bike with the same style tank? How does it feel through the middle (between your legs), contrast the two if you've ridden both. I felt on the RFS bike it kept the bike nice and narrow between your legs standing and the width was only felt when putting your leg forward near the radiator shrouds for turns. How is it in comparison on the 450/500 frame?
