I have been comfortable on the stock setup, so I am curious.
Are the guys that need bar backs! Are they the same ones that need a new seat?
I've tried to figure out what bike they have come from, maybe an LT or GW, thus the need for seat and bar changes as the GT is more a agressive riding position. Maybe, because my GT is an 07 the seat is better.
Or the real truth, after riding my Ducati sitting on it's hard board of seat in a semi-fetal crouch, the GT is like a couch. These 64+ bones were only good for about an hour on the Duc, until I put a Sargent seat on the Duc. better, but not even close to the GT.
Do not take this wrong, what I am saying is we are all different, so what is comfortable to one of us is probably not for others. Beside the bike is yours so make it fit you.
I am just looking a point of reference.
Having bought my GT at the end of December in snowy Michigan, where at sat in the "heated' garage so I could go look at it and whine about all the CA guys getting to ride. I started to panic reading about all the problems and negative things I read about, what had I done to me. Thus the need for points of reference.
I bought the best bike there is. After getting good riding weather and a problem less bike I can not be more pleased.
