I’ve been having ongoing issues with the seating position on the Harley-Davidson Street 750. My preconceived notion that a cruiser would be more comfortable than bikes with a more conventional riding position has, so far, been proved wrong.
Having changed the seat to a Mustang Fastback seat (www.mageurope.eu), things have improved a bit but the Hog still makes my coccyx ache on long journeys. An Airhawk Motorcycle Comfort Seat (www.motohaus.com) has made riding more bearable but it's still not perfect.
I’m thinking that it might be a more fundamental problem. Suspension expert Mark Hammond (www.mhracing.com) was on hand to give advice and make some tweaks at recent get together with the Thames Vale Advanced Motorcyclists group. He suggested taking one step off the rear preload. I’m hoping this will stop every bump in the road resonating through my delicate being!
If this doesn’t work the answer could be to look at replacing the shocks. I’ll keep you posted.
