Here is Mike on the Honda ST 1300 Police Motorcycle and as you will note at only 5’10” he has to strain his neck to have his head back and upright already minimizing viewing as the neck is in a cocked position. Notice how his torso is canted forward applying unnecessary pressure to the shoulders and wrists along with the increased strain on the lower back.
Also notice the position of the hips and how the seat creates a forward push on the Hip flexors and the important muscles around it that you need for flexibility.
Please note the rider protection or lack thereof even for the Motorcycle. In the event of a hard drop or dump, there appears to be the potential for a lot of damage to the Motorcycle and the riders legs are exposed to severe damage. I would hate to be paying the workers comp policy for departments riding this bike.
We then asked Terry who is 6’5” to mount the Honda and his response was, "I still have toys from my childhood that would be more comfortable to sit on much less work on it all day." We do know from ergonomics studies that having Terry mount the bike that at 6’5” the pressure on the shoulders and arms increase dramatically and the pressure on the hip flexors is off the chart. We will try and convince him to get on the Honda.
