For me it was my "Harley Tariff" Sabre, '84 with Hondaline fairing. I'm a fairly small guy, so it was a very roomy layout for me. Nothing was extreme on that bike , not too tall, not too long, not too heavy or light, more power than I needed, flat seat so I could slide around on long trips. Hondaline fairing was also just right. Not the sweetest looking lump of plastic, but just right for good weather coverage without a lot of heat buildup in summer. It was a real "Goldilocks" bike, bars, pegs, seat all right in the middle of the range. If some lowlife hadn't stolen it, I'd still be riding it, I'm sure.

My 1999 Yamaha Venture was by far the most comfortable bike I've had. I bought it in Philadelphia and rode it home to Chicago in less than 24 hours including a stop over at a motel. It was a bit of a handful around town though so I traded it for a Kawasaki Vulcan which is nowhere near as comfortable. But the Vulcan is more fun to ride.

Yet, I don't recall ANY of the long haul toruing rigs having this as an option. The only bike that I can think of is the HD Crossbones and it is simply a styling thing for that bike.

I wonder why that is?

You can still buy new bikes with sprung seats.

K75 with a good seat and well sorted suspension can ride like a cloud.

But at 560lbs, it'd never be mistaken for a lightweight.
