@timblanch - You're right the leg room is a bit more restrictive than on the C650GT, and most likely the C Evo already has the comfort seat option - I read somewhere that all the C Evos shipped to the USA are the Long Range version, with comfort seat and heated grips. For me the legroom isn't really that restrictive I just had to adapt a little bit. I can still put my feet up - for reference I'm pretty close to you in size 5'-9" ish with about a 31-32" inseam (I haven't seen 190# for a while but that's my goal weight) . It's actually a very comfortable position for me - palms flat, elbows slightly bent. None of that wind push from behind. I posted this picture early in the thread but I'll put it up here again. There is a standard motorcycle style handlebar under the plastic - I wouldn't rule out being able to add a riser to bring the bars slightly up and back if necessary. Too bad about your dealership experience. You'd think they would be willing to go the extra mile especially in the off-season. I'm sure my dealer here in Seattle would stay open late if they had to to close a sale. When I bought my GSA in January 2 years ago, there was a week of bad weather and they delivered it to my house and picked up my trade with their service truck. Good luck Tim, keep us posted!
