2012 Super Tenere. Sat on one at the Motorcycle show and I think with the seat on the highest position it may be a perfect fit.

Great thread idea. How are people not understanding what this is asking?

Maybe 10 more posts til it turns into "post a pic of your bike" thread...

For me it was a Yamaha Venture.
It was like a barcalounger. I never got to ride it beyond a putter around the lot.

Not that I would want to own a mega cruiser like that but I wouldn't mind taking one for a long ride around the Northwest. (once)

This one....sat on one at the bike show and my ass was in love. Monster of a bike but damn did it feel comfy!1

I'd still like to test ride both.

JA

I am a pround 2011 Norge owner. It is in deed a very comfy ride!
It handles very well ( way better than my former bike- BMW K1200 RS) in the twisties and multi days 10 hours+ rides are easy!

The engine is so alive and has its own personality and what a sound!
You have to try it!

Triumph Tiger Explorer. Feels custom-made for me.
Everything is perfectly placed in stock form.

As long as we're talking comfort, nothing beats Burgman 650.

90 Kawasaki Concours 1000, but our Honda St1100 was a close second.

I know...I say that tongue-in-cheek. The bike gets little respect among the adventurer crowd.

Once my CBR250R has outstayed its welcome, I'm gonna take a hard look at the NC700X -- and the new 500X.

For me, the most comfortable bike I never got a chance to ride was a brand new 1974 Moto Guzzi Eldorado with solo seat. I saw it sitting in a shop in Montreal back in 74. I had just purchased a new 73 BMW R75, the previous year that I loved at the time. But I went in and sat on that Guzzi and everything just fit. The seat fit my butt, and all the controls all seemed to be in just the right place. I was fairly new to riding at the time and my BMW was the biggest and heaviest I had ever ridden at the time. I thought that if I really wanted to do some major touring, I just might spring for the Guzzi. Unfortunately, due to having to pay of university bills, the money for the Guzzi never appeared. Even to this day, when ever I see one, I automatically start drooling.

'75 GL1000. It was HUGE and I didn't begin to have that kind of money but it sure felt like a perfect fit. They started to sprout plastic not long after that so I sort of lost interest but the old-school naked Wings still catch my eye.
