Re: Sport Classic Test Fit (foggy123)
Scott, I'm going for the standard yellow. Gotta match my 872r! I like the black, I think it'll look sinister.
I was happy to find the seating position was as aggressive as it was and was expecting to have to add clipons and rearsets as I've done with my previous SS's.
IMO, the Sport1000 was:
more aggressive than a SS (bars slightly lower, pegs slightly higher)
more sporty than the 999 which feel like rc51's to me
obviously doesn't compare to my ass-in-the-air 916 style bike.
My only complaint is the appearance of the ridiculously wide seat. First impressions were it is so wide it belongs on a gullwing. After a while, it made sense though- the proportions of the tail section were designed to match the width of the tank. From many angles, the bike just looks right.
