I've tried a multitude of bikes recently, and I find that the 96-04 RT's are the most nuetral/comfortable of the lot. I am 6'2'' with 34 inch inseam and weigh 230#. The seat is in the second position with seat beads. No bar risers, but foam overgrips.This places my thighs at just a slight downward angle and my feet are in line vertically with my hip joint. Makes for good comfort. Also have a ThrottleMeister which greatly reduces hand and wrist fatigue. I use it ALOT. My back is never sore, the wrists are always ok. The bottom of my bum gets a little sore at the 250 mile mark, but Im sure a Russell seat will fix that.
