I got my 2009 GL1800 in February. At first I was feeling pretty cramped up and generally not at home on the bike. I am also 6'6" tall. I did a few things like ****-O-Pegs, foam grips, and a Hartco seat to adjust the bike for me. Things were better, but still felt a bit not at home. Then at some point I can't pinpoint the bike started feeling like it was MY bike. I am much more at home now. I wasn't sure it would happen, but I am very glad that the adaptation period is over. The wing now feels like part of me. Slinging it into corners, I am feeling where the center of gravity is (if that makes any sense- hard to explain). Just thought I would share my experience in case someone is going through the adaptation period. The wing is one fine bike. I am really enjoying riding every chance I get.
