Well we would still like to hear from anyone who may have gone from the older style 1800 to the latest style to hear if there is any difference in the seating that may benefit the taller rider. How about Flyone, he is a big guy and has made the change. Where are you Bill when we need you!

Maybe If Honda took the 1500 frame & the 1800 frame messured the 2 & Made the 2014 wing off the platform between the 2 maybe this would solve this problem or revamp the 1500 altogether & Put in a fuel Injected engine with differant steering & suspention would be a good improvement over the currant Model .I can tell you Im 5"10 & have no problems with my 1500 & I also don`t have a problem with the 1800 either .For All of the riders who are having a problem with the cramped issue Go here www.bosshoss.com I know its a totally differant bike but its Longer also just my 2 cents worth !

All good things come to He who waitith if he workith like hell while he waitith !

I have an 08 1800.

I am 6'5"

no issues with my knees hitting the fairing.

A good set of Highway pegs are always useful, have had them on
