The only bikes I'm aware of that are available in the U.S. that have truly standard ergonomics are the Goldwing, Bonneville, and the Suzuki TU250. After that dual sports seem to come the closest, with an upright seating position and mid mounted pegs. I prefer to have no forward lean, because I have neck and shoulder issues. I even have 2" higher than stock bars on my XT225. A small amount would probably be ok, but I found the '09 Ninja 500, which many call a standard, to have way to much for me. Yet it felt ok sitting on it in the showroom. But that was 3 years ago, and things have gotten worse. I would love to have a Bonneville, if I could afford it. I used to own a '66 Bonnie, it would be nice to have one that was reliable. I have considered selling the Goldwing and getting one, but once you have experienced the comfort of a Goldwing, especially the 1500, it is very hard to give up. I prefer the 1500 to the 1800. My boss is 12 years older than me, and rides an 1800, which he prefers to the 1500 he had, because it handles better. For me comfort is everything.
