Second bike for big guy?
Ok, asked this when getting my first bike, a 650 vstar classic, and love it. But my knees don't love it. An hour to hour and a half and I've got to get off and walk around for a while, if not a day or two. I did put the Ziv's 4" extensions on the forward controls and that helps some. Part of the problem is I'm out of shape, and I've got LONG legs, and my knees are shot.
So far the only ones I've tried that fit were a Suzuki 1800, can't remember the model number, and the Honda Fury. The Fury would be OK, except the welds look like crap and it's got too small a tank for my taste, have fill up every 80-90 miles from what I understand.
I'm half way tempted to cut the frame on my 650 and extend it about 3-4 inches, but I know that would be a ton of work. I tried sitting on a 1100 and it felt about the same. I just really wish my 650 was a little longer in the seat to foot rest area, but I can't extend any more without hitting the front fender.
