    Remember when. Still feel that way

    Says the guy with the GS with ABS, and ESA. And the Buick limited with 10 way power seats, climate control, etc etc etc.

    Hey, climate control on the GS. Hummmm

So my question is, are there accessories in common use by tall V-Twin riders? (I suppose I could dig this out of a H-D forum but have never tried to find an appropriate one).
    I have a 6'6" nephew that had his Harley pegs and controls extended forward to accommodate his long legs. So, it can be done. But IMNSHO the V-Twin riding position is terrible from a performance and comfort standpoint.
