Mmmm... You all make very relevant points, and as mentioned a free test ride should not be out of the question.
It would have to be a reasonable ride taking in city traffic, country lanes, motorways the usual stuff with the missus as pillion too.
"I would also add the most of the FJR's at the show had the seats on the lowest setting which makes the ridge between front and back the worst too"
Unfortunately due to my short legs
this is the setting I would need...
I will contact the YAM dealer where i bought my Fazer, see what they have to say regarding a test ride.
