Looks like a pretty comfortable bike. Seating position is very upright for someone of my height (6'1"), which would be pretty comfortable for longer trips. Not very aggressive at all though. Not really good for if you want to lean in while you are riding.

Not bad! I bet you can't wait to get on it if you haven't already

I haven't had a chance to see or sit on one yet, but I am looking forward to it! Comfort is a big concern for me, so I am hoping that is going to be one of the pros for the Gunner. More comfortable than the Japanese bikes out there with a hard basically plastic seat.

Great bike, but uncomfortabel seat. That can really be a downer. You can always replace the seat, but shouldn't manufacturers make the seats comfortable to begin with?

They should but I guess that is what they found to work well, at least there's always the option to swap it for what you feel is better.

The only thing I might change is bring the bars back a little, I mean not so much like drag bars. By that I mean bring the end of the bars in towards the tank.
