I did end up selling the SMT to Org that posted in this thread, he flew in last spring and stayed overnight and rode it home 2000km roughly.
I love my SMR except for the seat after an hour, the SMT is not an option as I hated it too, not many options here, often I modify my own and that may be what I have to do.
My only other complaint is that the stock tires were worn, although I rode it home 3 hours in a rainstorm, freezing cold, at 100mph it still handled great! I had a set of Michelin Pilot Power 3's put on, and now it weaves like a bitch at speed, besides that it handles well, but when I pass on the highway I bet I look like I'm going to go down, knees tight and tucked in its almost ridiculous at 125mph!
I only have 500km on the PP3's but they have to go! Anyone with experience on a SMR have a suggestion? I never noticed it at all on the stockers?
