I sat on the CTX and was a perfect fit. But then I have put 160,000 miles on Vulcan 750s, a mid '80s cruiser. The riding position is what attracts me to this bike. The seat did not see to be as comfortable as the Vulcan's, but since I did not get to ride it, It's hard to tell. What this bike needs is a rider backrest. That makes the feet forward riding position 10 times more comfortable, and for me it is already way more comfortable than the lean forward/rearset peg riding position. My back is fine. My knees and shoulders are not.
