I went out to the dealer today and took a look at the FZ-6, and I loved it. I am coming from a Shadow 1100 which I really like, but it tends to give me some lower back pain after riding for a while. I am thinking something that leans me forward a bit will help transfer some weight to my arms instead of all on my lower back. Also, I am just in the mood for a change. Here is my problem...
While the seating position seems like it will help, I am concerend about my legs. I am about 6'2'', and am used to riding in a normal cruiser position (nothing too extreme, knees bent at around 90 degrees). After sitting on the FZ-6, I am thinking at best, shifting and braking my get annoying, and at worst, my legs will start to cramp. Is there any way to relocate the pegs (or maybe an aftermarket set) that lets you stretch your legs a bit more?
Not sure if the SV-650 gives a bit more room (I also like that bike), but I think I am leaning toward theFZ. Any thoughts?
