Seen the California today live for the first time.
I'm no cruiser guy (I'd rather have anything else, including scooters), but
this thing is AMAZING.

I dont get why everyone equates it to a gyno chair...My couch (my real couch not my goldwing) reclines and I am sitting in almost exactly the same position. and I don't have a vagina. Its comfy.

But your legs are supported all the way down.

I have forward controls on my Wide Glide and I haven't really found a setup that is comfortable for me. It's great for around town and short hops, but run long and with the stock seat I have no room to shift, and with the sundowner my legs cramp from not being stuck nearly straight.

I had a wide glide also. Sold it to a guy in Florida! Is your name Randy?
BAck when I had it, it didn't bother me with my legs out front but hey...that was many moons ago...it might be different now. I know I *had* to put forward foot rests on my goldwing, on the standard pegs my legs are about at a 70 degree angle and that is not comfortable for long periods of time.

Agreed. It's the best looking bagger I've seen.

Today it's definitely the Street Triple R. IMO it's the best street bike you can get for $9k and probably one of the best handling too.

+1 I have been trying to forget this bike since my test ride last week. I've asked the folks over in the Stripple form how it stacks up against my current twisties weapon (modified SV650S). The conclusion was that the riding experience would be slightly better, but probably not worth $10K.

I have been reading on the various triumph forms of how crappy the mirrors are, how the seat would need to be changed etc etc. I still can't quite get it out of my head! And damn is that thing sexy!
