I was going to say 'neither do Honda', just to be catty, but then I remembered the Africa Twin.

Maybe a Gt650 would be better.
Bigger bike more leg room.
That is a comfortable bike to ride and I much prefer it to my GTR .

Very true - GT650 (and its wee brother the GT250) are super comfy bikes, and you could add a screen if you want one, I know one of our forum members has done that.

Hi Bob
It's 37 today so still nice.
The problem I get with the seat is how slippery it is.
Would live to fit something to stop me sliding while blasting it.

The reason why i mentioned it is it gives some support for your back to rest against. Where as just the cushion (whilst i would keep this as this would reduce vertical loading of the spine), the backrest(sissy bar) would give your spine some support to stop a curvature. I don't ride cruisers but i imagine it would help somewhat.
