Yet another new member....
Hey all. Just wanted to pop in as a new member to the forums. I normally only lurk but since I have found that a lot of good info can be found by just introducing yourself and asking, I thought that might be better.
Right now I ride a 2011 Harley Sportster xl1200c with a few upgrades including stage 1 full. It is my starter bike since my first ended up going under a car that the driver decided he wanted me as a hood ornament (I was at a stop sign at the time, fully stopped). That said, I have put a pot of miles onto the sporty in the past year, but it's not very comfy in the long hauls (rides past 45 minute marker).
Since it's coming into my second season, I was thinking of trading into a Yamaha raider for the size of frame and motor, since the wife would like to go for a spin sometimes too. I am 6' even at about 190 pounds. Long legs take up most of my body, so as the Sporty is FUN, I get cramped up even with forward controls on her.
So with all that in my intro, could anyone give suggestions on what to expect if and when I decide to throw down for a raider?
Thanks and keep the rubber side down!
