    You could wrap the blog article in . That will make it more readable.
    @lockhrt999 - Thanks. The sport tourers do suit most of us ergonomically as they allow a more or less equal distribution of forces between both arms, the torso, the back and the legs. I too have a couple of ruptured discs (L4-L5 and L5-S1) from a decade and a half ago and so am partial to the likes of the Bonneville

    Will wrap it up. I just 'blogged' it from a post I had put in in one of the threads long back.

    This is true, but there is one more thing i have noticed.

    When the cross-wind is too heavy and you are forced to reduce your speed to say -- less than or around 5km/hr, and the road is somewhat wet and you don't wanna stop and ride on at less than or around 5 km/hr, the whole body stiffens up and you find yourself crouching and dragging your feet along, slightly touching the road, at that time, if you apply some brake and raise accelerator at half clutch condition, somehow the road grip/traction is increased or atleast makes you feel like you have more traction and makes you feel slightly more in control.
