Why? It is a great bike.
I am a pround 2011 Norge owner. It is in deed a very comfy ride!
It handles very well ( way better than my former bike- BMW K1200 RS) in the twisties and multi days 10 hours+ rides are easy!
The engine is so alive and has its own personality and what a sound!
You have to try it!
At one time I would have said 2005 BMW R1200GS However I now say 2102 HD FLHR aka Road King
Triumph Tiger Explorer. Feels custom-made for me.
Everything is perfectly placed in stock form.
As long as we're talking comfort, nothing beats Burgman 650.
90 Kawasaki Concours 1000, but our Honda St1100 was a close second.
I know...I say that tongue-in-cheek. The bike gets little respect among the adventurer crowd.
Once my CBR250R has outstayed its welcome, I'm gonna take a hard look at the NC700X -- and the new 500X.
For me, the most comfortable bike I never got a chance to ride was a brand new 1974 Moto Guzzi Eldorado with solo seat. I saw it sitting in a shop in Montreal back in 74. I had just purchased a new 73 BMW R75, the previous year that I loved at the time. But I went in and sat on that Guzzi and everything just fit. The seat fit my butt, and all the controls all seemed to be in just the right place. I was fairly new to riding at the time and my BMW was the biggest and heaviest I had ever ridden at the time. I thought that if I really wanted to do some major touring, I just might spring for the Guzzi. Unfortunately, due to having to pay of university bills, the money for the Guzzi never appeared. Even to this day, when ever I see one, I automatically start drooling.
'75 GL1000. It was HUGE and I didn't begin to have that kind of money but it sure felt like a perfect fit. They started to sprout plastic not long after that so I sort of lost interest but the old-school naked Wings still catch my eye.
BMW K1200RS R1100RS R1100GS F800R and R1150R Rockster
I currently have a R1200R 2009 and I think BMW have lost the plot with this bike it looks OK Rides very well but has a very average seat for rider and truly awful pillion seat
Just felt right all over the place.
If i actually rode it...
Ashamed to say Yamaha TX 750.
Why anyone would put an all day comfortable seat on a bike that was prone to hand-grenading well before your butt went numb, god know, but that's life I guess.
Exactly this. Something about that bike really appeals to me.
a KZ1000 Police bike with a small little backrest...it was cushy for sure...
Hmm, no Aprilia Futura? I always heard they were so comfy, especially the seat. It felt really good in the showroom for those 2-3 minutes...
1995 K75RT very comfortable & very boring.
Sat on a Gold Wing and it was fantastic. But as soon as I tipped the bike up off the stand, I knew it felt too heavy for me. YMMV.
BMW K1600GTL had a comfy seat, and felt light enough on a test ride that I believe it would have been a fantastic bike. Just a little outside my price range, though.
HD Electra Glide was very nice.
Victory (I forget which model) was also very nice.
The best seat I've ever sat on has been the stocker on my Aprilia Futura. I rode it back from NYC to Memphis in two days and my butt felt like it had just been massaged by virgins rubbing it with rose petals.
So, what's the percentage of people who actually read the thread title and are responding correctly?
Just a little hint: "ever" does not equal "never" ...
but ever is included in never :)
