Hi all! I've already gotten some offers to let me test ride some locally to where I live, so it looks like a real possibility here in the near future. Plus the guys locally know these bikes really, really well. It's a purchase that would be "down the road" anyway, so I am not in any hurry to make a final decision yet. It's just one model I am intrigued by.
I think I am attracted to the Virginia because the seat sits lower and I am short. I want to be able to sit comfortably on the bike with my feet on the ground, not tippy toe. But the idea of lying way back does not work for me because of neck problems. Neither do I want to be sitting straight up. Wonder what the degree of seat recline is on these? Are they as versatile as a RANS seat, if, in fact, you put a RANS seat on one? I really like that seat...never had problems with it at all.
