Hey guys, what are some things you do to make your bike a little more tolerable for longer rides? What do you think about handlebar risers?

Buying Risers kinda means you bought the wrong bike. The GT would be the bike to sit you up straight. The thing about aftermarket risers is they look like shit and they don't do anything for your foot position which is the other half of the equation.

I'm 71 years old and recently circumnavigated the entire US on a K 1200 S. After the 1st 500 miles I was fine. What will continue to bother you is the stock seat. Those beaded covers will help a lot with that.

I have heli-bars on my R and they are great! About a 1 rise,stock cables and discreet. They alter the riding position only a small amount but take enough pressure off my neck and back to make riding easy.
