    I take it you're not into sport bikes (crotch rockets). And it's not bad having to lean forward... unless you have bad shoulder and elbow joints... then it gets a little painful after a long ride.

    nope, I ride a crotch rocket actually (Buell XB9R) and find more upright bikes uncomfortable (I'm driving the "S" version of the XB9 tonight, I can't stand it) but can go 500km/day plus on the crotch rocket no problem.
    but that bike, with the bars forward and pegs forward but your ass far back would be killer on you back... I know my uncle, who's raced and had sportbikes since he was 17, can't even ride big cruisers (eg VTX1800) because you have to bring your legs so far back when you stop... my aunt was joking that he had hip dysplasia for days after riding it :lol:

    Idont' know really, if you look just at the exhaust it looks dumb but when you look at the second pic you can see how it really flows with the lines of the bike but that's just my $.02

    I love the exhaust design, it flows well with the bike's lines.
