I like the forward foot controls better myself….only feels natural to have the feet in front of me…. is how I sit in a car, couch , chair etc. . Sport bike types give me that “kid on the see-saw about to get a cherry bruise from the playground devil” feel. To much head first feel. I am sure I could get used to it…. heck I better…not sure what they use in MSF but got that in 2 weeks. But my Vulcan has me spoiled.
