Same for K12/13S and the same for my r12ST and R12S (which is more agressive than the K13S.

This is the only way to put serious miles on a forward leaning sport bike. If you practice it every day for an hour or two, your core muscles will strengthen and you won't even notice the effort after a week or two.

I was basic Boxer 60-70-80-90-00's, mostly sit up and beg position.
Moved to an RSL boxer in 200X and took about 500 miles before I realised how much more comfortable I was, no weight on tailbone, ez on the back.
MYRP is my goal, being long (esp arms) there are some adjustments, but I find it difficult to sit upright on most bikes, now.
GS a bit more tolerable than other boxers, for me.

We love our K.
YMMV


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?
