Not for me.

I found that the seat sloped forward too much. Hate that.
Pro'ly so that those of shorter inseam can reach the ground at stops.

Pretty much every bike's factory seat is like that. Had the same issue with my FZ1, Bandit, and Strom.

You guys just don't weigh enough to compress the real shock to where the seat is level. I hope to experience your problem some day.

Yup, my experience too. Luckily my massive balls counterbalance this and I'm left level and comfortable.

It sure looks like that oil filter might be in harms way for serious off road work. Maybe it's the photo, anyway nice ride.

Wow. The sounds the ice falling off the trees is making is unnerving and has awaken me for the second time. I hope anyone who has to go to work stays safe out there, it's going to be a mess out this way.

At 10:30 last night I heard my car alarm going off. Went to see my very large sugar maple was covered with ice and lying on top of my van. CRAP!!!

I went the other way - sold all the M&Ps and went to Glocks. Interesing, tho, that when I went to TDI last fall, more M&Ps there than anything. And me with a 1911

All except the DRZ400, every time I rode that thing, I felt like I was sliding off the back.

All last night I kept getting woke up from all the ice and limbs around the 'hood falling and expected at any minute for one of the trees to come through my house but by the time 5:30 rolled around, all the ice was on the ground and all our trees still standing.

The dog on the other hand is a little inconvenienced as she is finding it very hard to lay land mines standing on ice!

Does the yard slope one way or the other? Every turd laid would just slide off into the neighbor's yard. Hope your yard isn't the lowest spot on the block...

Last bad ice storm my neighbor's tree, which I had told her to cut down since it was rotten in the middle, broke in half and fell on my truck. Damn thing never ran right again. The other half finally fell over in a bad windstorm, this time onto her house. Poetic justice I thought.
