Decided that except for maybe the Diavel, all cruisers have their pegs too far forward for me to feel comfortable.

Great choice, however, and one my wife and I are strongly considering. We found the Multi a better fit and more connected than the GT, as we essentially sit at the same angle on the Duc. On the GT she felt more upright with me having a forward lean. It wasn't so much as to leave her feeling overly exposed, but after years on an RT, she likes to stay close.
No we haven't, and we did note that the Multi's seat was only an inch higher than my Daytona's, so shouldn't be such a big deal. We still plan to go to the Duc dealer and take a look at some point; but, as she and I talked, she made some good points about the Sprint vs. the Multi, basically that they were so very close in many ways, yet the Duc was $6 grand more.

As I said before, this purchase will be NEXT spring/summer, so we still have time. But at least we have it down to a couple bikes now... Basically it's the Sprint vs. the Multi; unless the Motus is competitively priced, then we'll look at that too.

Thanks to everyone on this thread by the way, your input has helped us narrow down the list.
