Hey CrossRoads, sorry for the long reply.
I like the low seat, though I am 6' I am a layback, and low sitting rider. It was nice to sit behind a fairing with radio again, but I had alot of buffeting, to short of shield std. Was prepaired to hear a noise from six gear as I read something about it, but did not hear or feel anything out of norm. 2nd gear did seem a little junky, but not bad.
Did wonder how much a difference it would raise the height of seat when adding 39lbs of air for rider and passenger combined weight?
The CC had Awsome Power, Very Impressed! Overall, Very Happy.
One of my concerns with any touring fairing & trunk bike is the top weight. I did not feel any problems with the CC.
A few months back sold my Yamaha Royal Star Venture, could not handle the top heaviness due to braking my back (3rd time), this time due to a 23' fall hunting accident. That is why I went to the Heritage, but it hurts my tailbone when I ride.
Thanks for the reply, next one will be shorter, Later-
