I have recently bought a 2005 Honda Super Blackbird. Having very short legs and only being 5' 7" tall I found it necessary to have the seat cut down slightly. I also read an article on the Blackbird owners website about a guy who had replaced the standard Blackbird handlebars with some from a Honda VFR800 V-TEC. Since fitting some to my bike I have found that they take the weight off your wrists at low speeds and are much more comfortable on your back. I now find it an ideal riding position and would recommend it to anyone in similar circumstances. i.e. a short arse with a bad back.
