Hope I'm in the right place with this intro.

Hello to everyone.

I currently have a CBF1000 which I have enjoyed for the past 2 years but the years are catching up with me ( 63 ) and I am hoping something lower and not so top heavy will give me a few more years biking.

I am happy to tootal along and I like the look of the M800 and hope it would be right for me.

My only real concern is would I find the riding position comfortable with feet forward ?

If you have advice or similar experience I would be pleased to hear.

Hello yorky, great to have you on board.
I am not the really the right person to give advice on the riding position of the M800 as I ride a C800 but I believe the positioning would be fine. We have many older as well as younger members that ride the m800 and I have never heard any of them say anything negative with regards to the feet & the riding position, some have gone one step further and added the forward controls that put your feet out even further. Good luck with your choice.

Hi Yorky &  

Like Dave says " some have gone one step further and added the forward controls that put your feet out even further..."    I'm one of them - I mainly did it for comfort as I'm very long legged, but I love the riding position.  ps mines a M800 too. Good luck in your search!

Hi yorky, I am biased but the M8000 is superb. Love having my feet further forward.....never had any other riding position ;-)

Hey Yorky  to the site.

Feet forward is how you sit on the couch - how much more comfortable do you want to be ???
