Congrats on your new bike!Well, the ST1100 is the best motorcycle ever built. I put 150K on them. St13's are almost as good, maybe better in some categories, (just my opinion), just a bit top heavy unless you are tall and strong. Reliability of an ST13 is as good or better than anything made. I need one come to think of it.
Plug your own variables into http://cycle-ergo.com/ and you can compare riding position. Examples below are for 6’ tall rider, but give an idea of seating position.What is the seating position like on these?
I am just so much more comfortable on a cruiser type bikes.
I have ridden an FJR and Concourse 14 and found both to make me lean forward more than I like place too much pressure on my hands, even with risers.
