The seating position on my Sporty Iron is perfect. But I'm only 5' 9".

Being on the the shorter side is sometimes an advantage. Everything but dirt bikes fits me great.

Indeed, tiny import cars, intimate booths in swanky restaurants, overhead storage compartments.....the list goes on.....

Hence why Ive been to over 350 shows... Great view just about anywhere, that and better air instead of the sweat soup at normal human levels. Though you guys can ride any bike for the most part, granted on a DS you may need a curb (or a bumper on Gabes old KTM review).

I've also been to as many shows (a former entertainment mag editor and part-time drummer/guitarist/singer/songwriter and manager), but I'm sure you had the better view!

Well you shouldn't be listening to the Devils Music anyway, it'll corrupt your mind and lead you to an early grave.
