Congrats on your new Diavel, it's a complete different ride than the Daytona. I have both and I love them in different ways. See you at the Diavel forums.

Both? Dayummmm... That would be ideal, but I have the feeling the 675 would get neglected. Not because of any shortcomings of course, but just because there are no consistent roads within 1.5 hours of here that would do it justice. I have the feeling in SoCal you don't really have that issue...

Did I mention that I need my Bike back ?! Joke aside that is a beauty

BTW, How far upfront are the handlebars? Do you feel stretched at all (Height)?

I think the riding position is really comfortable actually, especially with the touring seat. The reach to the bars looks longer than it actually is. It's a good compromise between comfort and sport. You start looking like a monkey humping a football when you REALLY hang off for sportier riding but it doesn't really feel that awkward.
I'm 5'10" and everything feels natural to the point where I've been out for 5 hours mixed highway/twisties and the only thing that was starting to get sore was my tailbone because of the seat curve. Even so, a little shift here and there and I could have easily gone for twice that. Probably will tomorrow with the weather shaping up, actually.
On the other hand, I did a 9 hour ride once on the 675. Once...
