I'm switching from a 06 to a 13. I've been working on sorting out the 06 and feel I have it perfectly fitted for my style of riding. Taken it on some 500 mile plus days back to back without any problems. I've ridden the 13 a couple of times now and noticed it requires a little lean forward and the grips feel lower. Took a quick measurement and found the peg to seat height was about 1.5 inches longer on the 13 than the 06, both have Russell Day Long Seats. I think this is what's causing the extra reach and more weight on my wrist as a result which I don't like for day long riding. Is this just something that was a change from the older model 06? The reason I'm going to the 13 is for the ABS feature. Is there something I'm over looking here.
