The F6B is by far the best motorcycle I've ever ridden

Hey guys and girls I'm so sorry to keep kicking a dead horse here, but I'm telling you, this F6B is the best thing I've ever landed my rear end on! Just did a trip from Charlotte to Kennedy Space Center, hopped across the peninsula to Bradenton Beach, and back home again, 2300 miles in 4 days, and completely bonded with this machine! From anything from Slow Ride gas station, to 115 miles an hour down 95, this thing never missed a beat! So glad I got my stock pipes on, before the trip, as I was under the full face for about 7 hours of the trip, and the Drone from the 6 on 6 cobras would have murdered me. Here's a couple of pictures from the trip.

You like the bagger ride . A bit more sporting to your style. Nice !!!!!!!! Although, if you had a trunk your diapers would not be hanging out the back end to dry.

Yeah it absolutely fits me for now, maybe down the road, who knows might have to get the trunk and stuff again, I never say never anymore on buying bikes, trading, selling, I would say this is good for people who love to be comfortable on day trips, and go cross-country once or twice a year

Thanks for asking! Yes I had a little trouble on the way down, not enough to mention, and never had to pull over to take a break for it or anything, of course my riding position has solve any but problems, no rear end pain at all just like the 2006 full dress Goldwing, love the riding position. On the way home though I had the shoulder blade issue going across my right side, which I've had pain there for years for one reason, or the next, doing different activities will trigger that, probably for having to reach a little bit more than on my Vulcan, but geez 2300 miles in 4 days I expect my 52 year old body to hurt a little bit! I think I'm going in for a deep tissue massage next to see if some of these knots can get worked out! I did lean back into my backpack that I put on the bike,backseat, a few times and that seemed to help, so a backrest would probably be good for the lower to middle back pain that I was experiencing. Absolutely no lower back pain on the way home, which leads me to believe it could be a bed or mattress issue.

never mind the trunk, you don't need it. get one of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/231596305055...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT and put all your clothes in it. it comes with the straps to tie it down on the bike and it is waterproof, I have one that I use on the mighty ST 1300 and in all my travels last year no one bothered my bag
