I just don't understand a thing: the guy say the riding position is good in the city but on long distances it quickly becomes unconfortable!

If the riding position is good and confortable, how it can change in long rides???

I think see what he's saying. Around town you're stopping and starting, going no faster 30-40 Mph, so the up right riding position is great. But on longer journeys on free-ways, motorways, (dual)carriageways, ect you'll be doing 60+, so naturally your riding position will change, you'll lean in more. and you won't be stopping and starting as much. So I guess he's found that uncomfortable.

Personally, the only annoyance I've had at 60+ are the mirrors; as soon as I lean in I can't see jack behind me and have to make exaggerated movements to check the lanes before moving.

Also, I am starting to wish the seat had a wee bit more padding.
