Reading all the threads about aftermarket seats to change height (I’m not talking about stock seat cushioning comfort), suspension adjustments, handlebar risers, aftermarket windshields and windshield appendages to counter buffeting have raised a question in my mind —- what is the ideal sized rider for the as-built Honda Crosstourer VFR1200X? What sized riders does it seem Honda engineers were envisioning when they designed our bike? Said another way, if we could change OUR dimensions to ideally fit our bikes as built, what would you change?
For me, the bike is nearly perfect without modification for fit, but I wouldn’t mind an extra inch or so of leg length to add to my 5’10” height. I have recently added a MCCruise electronic cruise control that makes a difference in comfort on long rides but doesn’t change “fit.”
