The other day, I had to pick up food with no bag and found myself completely pressed up against the tank of my '13 D675R (explaining to wife that Indian food pickups on the bike are not my favorite activity doesn't work). I've always thought it pretty bad form to sit straight up on the tank, and I'm 6'1, certainly not the shortest guy the bike was designed for. I was really surprised how much the bike seemed to like being ridden from that far forward, and in NYC traffic, my wrists were very thankful.
I am not a new rider by any stretch, but have never tried riding that far forward. Just wondering if anyone else sits super far forward and if the Daytona's geometry favors that for some odd reason. I'm not looking to change my track habits, but making the Daytona a more comfortable commuter would't be an awful thing.
