K1600GT smooth, hmmm, better add a few o's.. smooooooth. That thing was awesome. Comfortable as hell, superb balance, my daughter gave me 'buy' instructions. Of course she wasn't looking to pay!

NEVER rode?

HMMMM,

BMW R1200RT - the ergos felt just perfect to me, and everytime I test sit a bike, that is what I compare it to.

Victory Vision - I could see me doing big miles on that bike. It just wouldn't be fair...

Triumph Rocket III Roadster. - another case of good ergos.

Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic - ok I rode one on a demo ride, but it was only about 10 - 12 miles. I really enjoyed it. A very pleasant ride.

It doesn't make sense, but just play along or someone will yell at you.

Varadero, sat on it at a bike show and it felt huge. For some reason I never did go to the dealer to try one.
