Would be hard to have a relationship when we've never met.

Lord help me, I love it. It's in my sig line, if you have no objection. Heck, I'll likely leave it there even if you mind. ;-)

Wouldn't you rather have a REAL man? A man that will let you fulfill your inner need to cook and clean? A man who will make decisions for you, so you don't have too? I mean, you are just a girl. And if you're a "good" girl, he may even let you ride on the back of his motorcycle.!

That is because you are not a 5' 6" 120lb. Asian male. Seat is perfect for them.

I will say that my '00 VFR and my '05 640 Adventure are pretty comfortable. Past bikes were brutal though, including a Gixxer and some KLR's.
