I'm new here and this is probably the topic on which I am most knowlegeable. [Not more than others necessarily, I just spent a lot of money and time making my 1800 comfortable.] I'm just about 6'3" and have a 33" inseam. After a month of riding my 1800, I hated it and wished I hadn't bought it. As I said, it took a while but now it works. If you want to see what I did, take this link. Lots of us have used many of these ideas to make a go of it and now are very comfortable on our 1800s. GL1800Riders.com :: View topic - Getting ComfortableHey Nedro, I am curious as to what about it you'd find uncomfortable if you were any taller?? I thought these things were perfect for taller riders!
I'm 6'3" and that statement worries me a little. Would you expand on it a bit?
Glad to hear you like the wing as much as I do. All your points are right on as far as I can tell. I have owned mine for about 6 months now and do love it alot. I like to freak out the cagers around me when in town by taking the turns without even slowing much, and it drags stuff all day long with ease if I want it to. I do wish for maybe a bigger OD gear somtimes when on the superslab though, imagine the mileage gain with that. Runs about 3k doing 70mph. I like the suspension presets, soft for the highway, stiff for the twisties. My wife calls it here couch on wheels.....which it is, but it doesn't ride like it. The bike feels soo much smaller once you get away from parking lot speeds its amazing. Very happy in my opinion. I could use just a tad taller windsheild for the highway but I'm afraid around town I would lose some of that cooling air around town when the sheild is in it's lowest position. Great bike otherwise IMO.I rode a 2001 last night for about 50 KMs (some alone, some with Wifey on the rear throne) and all I can say is Oh My God, this thing is awesome.
