I figured I would ask others here what they thought about the seating position on their 1 series with a BH. Since trading in my 1023E for a 1025R FILB, I have felt very, how can I say..., uneasy in the seat. These machines are nearly identical except for the addition of some niceties, the BH, and of course the seat. I feel like I sit too high, and the "pucker" factor is somewhat heightened, to the point of feeling uncomfortable where I normally felt comfortable on the E.
Ok, so I have a bit of sloping ground in my front yard, that when on the E, I would traverse sideways without a second thought, but with the R having a higher seating position, I feel like a rollover is darn near imminent, even though I've driven across this terrain a hundred times before with the E. Am I crazy?
