how are your wrists and neck?
I'm 5'10 and 64 years old. I decided to sell my K-1300S to my 5'5" step-son because I could never ride it any appreciable distance without my neck and wrist hurting. If I pushed it, I might be able to 300 miles down the road before tapping out. I had the pegs lowered and helibars installed which helped a little, but you are still bent over on the S, not as badly as a Busa or Triumph Daytona, but unless you can relax on the bike and not squeeze the throttle or use your wrists to support your upper body while braking, you are going to be miserable after a couple of hours of fun. I solved the problem by selling the bike and getting a K-1300GT. It is a little heavier, doesn't handle as well and definitely not as fast, but I am sitting with a lot less lean and it is plenty good for the streets. With the step-son being shorter, the S is the perfect bike for him, he is sitting more upright and can ride forever.
