Unexpected problem with 'Stich
Got a new (to me) 2piece Roadcrafter yesterday, so I had to try it out with a '3 bipper' ride - that's the fuel doohickeys on the display.
Sizing is ridiculous but the fit is good....with one small exception.
Caution: graphic mental image follows.
Now, I can pretty well kick as high as those gals in Las Vegas, so mounting the 'Strom has never been a problem, uphill or down, even with a 31inch inseam. Until today.
I swung my leg up and promptly booted the saddle from the bottom. I then manually picked up my leg and this time booted the back Kappa box.
Sod this, said I, grasping myself by the crotch and thigh, I finally managed to get my leg over the saddle. Now, all this happened in my underground garage, hence no audience, but on the return trip, I had to start infront of a bus line-up in Whiterock.
Suave and debonair like Fred, or rather Ginger, I sidled up to the bike and tried swinging my legover from parallel. No go. Finally, I had to resort to the crotch and ass lift method.
There must be a better way.
