Maybe it's me, but that's the most comfortable Harley I've ever sat on.

Not just you. The pegs are closer to below the seat where they should be. All other Harleys have pegs below your knees like a wooden chair, or even further forward. The OEM seat sucked though, verily.

I rode an XR1200R one (swapped bikes one day with a friend), and I giggled the entire ride.  Great bikes!

It's a shame how I was treated at two different large HD dealers when I wanted to look at a test ride an XR.  The experience was just slightly better than when I was seriously considering a Buell Uly.  At least they had the XR on the showroom floor and not tucked away back in the service department.   ;D
