Nortoon - I know the 2014 Deluxe would be the same. I'm reconciled to putting a higher seat and doing something with the pegs if I got one.

I have a taller seat on my 2013, helps a lot. I also tried adjustable pegs, but there isn't much adjustment to the rear brake pedal to compensate for the lower pegs. I'm pretty good with just the taller seat.

I work at a multi line dealer and borrowed one of our new XSR700s to see what I thought. I was shocked how similar the ergos are to my tall seat CB. The XSR900 is a bit more relaxed, taller seat to pegs. I need to look them up on cycle ergos.

I can't wait to ride the Z900RS. The regular Z900 has a low seat and tight ergos.

Postoak, if you are in the Austin area, come by Central Texas Powersports in Georgetown and ask for Aaron. As long as you've got your M endorsement (I figure you do), you can ride this XSR700.

I am 6'2" tall and considering the same thing. But the tall seats are expensive. The Ferret's idea of taking an Asspirin before setting out works and is much cheaper.

2" kneeling pad strapped to your seat, $12-15

6'6", 36" inseam here. I don't find my DLX to be cramped or uncomfortable at all, though I limit my rides to 300-400 miles/day and wouldn't want to take it cross country. I guess we're all built a bit differently.

When I get numb bum or a cramp in my hip, I stand on the foot pegs on the next straight section of road. Stretching usually relieves the pain quickly. Not recommended in traffic, because the driver behind you might think you are mooning them.

I think you are supposed to wear some sort of pants beneath your leather chaps...Tongue

Is the Z900 even for sale yet? How could so many people have an opinion about a bike that no one has even rode yet.....

Wait a minute....waaaaiiiittt a minute, this is interesting. I thought you really liked the V7II?? At least that's what you posted over on Wild Guzzi? I thought the only reason you got rid of that that bike is some owners of the dealer you purchased from made you upset because they asked you to get out of their parking spot and treated you rudely in your mind?

Do tell....what made the V7II "the ultimate disappointment" now...
