With our luck you'd get a braille keyboard and we'd still have to deal with your posts...

I sat on it and compared to my Uly ('06 tall seat, 5'-10" 30" inseam rider) the seat is pitched forward somewhat (more than just from being on the rear stand) and is narrower. The pegs are farther behind than the Uly and closer to the seat. I personally didn't care for the seating position, although it would definetly require some riding time to be sure.
I'm intrigued by the adjustablilty of the suspension/powertrain but would wait and see how it all works in practice before considering it.
The looks are subjective, of course. I tend to be unimpressed by styling for styling's sake. Form should always follow function. That said, from the seat the view is pretty normal. I kind of look at this bike as the hot girlfriend or wife- awfully seductive but almost sure to cause some trouble.

I'm always impressed by the well thought out reply; giving special attention to logic, subjectivity, and objectivity. Thanks for your insights!

Seating position was similar to Triumph Tiger but the seat is not as dished out.

the windscreen adjusts manually up/down, in about five seconds--super easy.

It is good to meet people here, see what makes them come out of their shells so we get to know who they are, where they come from, and how they see the world. The braille keyboard posting was absolutely funny. Now, let's get back to appreciating this interesting bike.

How much you ride has zero to do with trolling.

Stick around a while, pay attention, and learn a few things about how this place works, and you will see what I mean.

If resorting to name calling and acting stupid is "how this place works" I may not stay long.
