    feels very light a skinny, not a skinny as a twin but smaller than what you would think from looking at it. ergos are about the same as a 6th gen. looks much better in person, doesnt have that over the top appearance that i thought it had in pics.

    Thanks.... that really puts in perspective. I thought it was bigger than that. (this is in no way saying your small but you see the pics with no one on the bike or a real style background and you get the bigger picture)

    We are planning on Saturday. Hope to see you there! (I wanted to ride up, but just don't think it will be very pleasant doing so.)

    this is a great shot, is it me or does the tank look the same size as the 6th?

    as im 6ft6 and the 6th tank size and posiiton suited me spot on.

    also what the heck is ergos?

    also, if anybody is going for testing, could you find out what the pillion seat is like becuase from the pictures it seems a bit hard and uncofortable where the hand rests are

    Butt tested it last Saturday. Ergos - very good. Seat - seemed hard as a rock (would need to ride it to make a final judgement).
