43 an dbeen riding 38 years, dirt bikes, Harleys, you name it. I have put in several 9 hour days on my HM and LOVE it ! This is the most fun I hav ever had on a bike !
this board and I have a few questions about the HM. I just discovered the HM about 2 weeks ago and have been learning all I can about the bike.
I am 5'8" and for anyone who is close to my height what is the riding position like? What I mean is how far do you lean forward to reach the bars? It's kind of hard by looking at pictures but it looks like the bars are low but not too far from the seat. My Ducati dealer won't be getting another HM until November but I'm trying to find out as much as I can from people who have seat time on the HM. I have ridden the Multistrada and that is a very nice ride, no problem reaching the bars and its a nice riding position.
Whatever bike I end up buying its purpose is for general running around town, going for rides, just a fun bike. For me going 50 to 100 miles is as far as I would take the bike from home. What I don't want to have is a lot of weight on my wrists and arms when I'm riding as that takes the fun out of it.
So if anyone can give me their riding impressions with the HM I would really like to hear from you guys.
