I have been looking for a Cruiser Style bike for awhile, but not fond of the Harley thing. I looked at and test rode the Victory Cross Country which I liked a lot, but had some issues with seating position and wind buffeting on my test ride. Got seriously turned off by the local Dealers' lack of knowledge about that bike, and their unwillingness to deal on price. So along comes the F6B, which I liked immediately, and zipped down to the Dealer to see it. Was a bit stunned at the massive size of that bike. I am sure it rolls down the road just fine, but I didnt' want anything quite that wide. The CTX caught my attention when I found out its a new evolution cruiser. Not a shakey V-twin, but a quiet, powerful 4 cylinder bike in a stretched out frame. I am a big guy (6'3" and 275 lbs) so stretching out is important. Valkerie, I dont' know, something about that huge engine just doesn't flip my switch, although I will not rule that bike out. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the CTX-1300 to see if I will fit the bike. I have concerns that my 34+ inseam will put my knees on the cylinder heads. If that happens, I will not be a happy camper. I don't want to have to modify the ergos on a new bike, just to fit it.

Being a big guy I'm sure you have a tough time finding one that fits you. I know that for the ST1300 and also my ST1100 there are a great many seat options available aftermarket to customize to any persons unique ergos. I'd be surprised if that would not be available on this bike. I know you'd like to keep to factory spec and just have it fit but sometimes it is better to find the bike you like other than seating and get a custom seat to make it ideal.
