Default Leg Room Magnum Vs Streetglide

I was shocked yesterday when I went back to the HD dealer to check out local events. I sat on a CVO pos street glide and it was painful. It had lowers and the leg room was unbelievable. I asked did they shrink this? " that's why I am always on the highway bars" geme a break dude.
I also didn't feel this way on the Chieftain Darkhorse. So Why hd?
I have a 30 inch inseam. 6'1 and know for sure hd hates people over 5 7"

The road glide was not as bad but still was pathetic to the room and saddle feel of the Magnum. So you couldn't pay me Willie.

I am also 6'1" but have a 33" inseam and I can not fit on any HD comfortably without peg extensions or highwaybars. My first street bike in 09 was a Suzuki M50 which is not a big bike but my first test ride of a road king shocked me, felt like I was on a heavy honda rebel! Test rode a XC and fit perfect on it so bought my XR a few weeks later plus got it for much less than what they want for a road king.

I can't say anything about Harleys, because I have near-zero experience with them, but one of the best aspects of the Cross Country is the leg room. Also keep in mind that the controls can be positioned in three settings.

I'm 6'1" with a 34-inch inseam. I've sat on an Indian Chief Dark Horse, and it felt small. Nothing compares to the Cross bikes if you're tall, yet the controls can be brought in closer, and they offered a closer-up seat, and the seat height is only 26.3 inches. Altogether that accommodates a wide range of rider sizes.

Sir . Your sitting on the lowest profile seat. So using a higher seat will fit better.

- laughed = I felt like I was sitting high on top of it instead of on or " in it " When I thought about turning it into a corner I imagined a complete disconnection. To be honest, it was traumatic.

So you bring to light that the seat height on a street glide is 1 higher then your magnum

The flexibility in the controls is really appealing to someone a little shorter than you at 5'9. Not sure how many bikes have this capability but first I've seen I think it's brilliant.

Have a 2014 CC and while I've never owned a Street Glide, I have ridden several and rented them on vacations in Hawaii. I'm only 5'10" and can tell you there is no comparison. If you can't stretch out enough on a CC, you might just have to have one of the Teutuls build you one of their stretched out monstrosities.
