The 848 may be a sports bike but I find the riding position reasonably comfortable. I used to own a BMW R1150RT back in 2003 which was supposed to be a tourer, but the riding position was far too upright and gave me lower back pain from slouching, I changed that bike in 2004 for a BMW K1200GT which was more sporting and more comfortable. 404 more words
