It is not as bad as seeing a 6' 280 pound man riding a sporster 883. LOL Talk about a monkey fudging a football. :angeldev:

Damn well matters to me!
I bought a '04 VRSCA and from the second I sat on it I knew it "had" to be mine. The forward controls and Corbin seat fit my 6'4" 210lb frame like a glove, and of all the motorcycles I've ridden I've never found one as comfortable as my V-Rod is... This is the first time I've ridden a bike with forward controls and it was as natural as walking for me, and refreshingly comfortable...

For me I've always had the feeling I did not quite fit was I was riding, the last bike I had was the Honda Aero 1100cc twin, that had floorboards... It always felt sort of clumsy and cramped... I find I can easily go from an almost relaxed reclining mode to agressively pushing the bike around corners easily, and this is my favorite motorcycle of all times, and I am sure it will be one I ride until I can't ride...
