I am not a flexible as I used to be. I find my Vstrom very comfortable with the upright position. i also have a Ninja 650 that is not as comfortable for 400 miles days. How would a connie 14 compare to the position of the ninja sport touring model? BTW this is my first post so hi evryone.

The Connie is more upright, closer to the Vstrom position than a Ninja. There are a lot of relatively inexpensive aftermarket options for improving that- bar risers, different foot pegs, etc. More expensive options like seats. I've done 400 miles a few times on the Concours, it isn't bad. Yeah, you are tired by the end but I think I'd be tired on any bike for that long. I'm about to do 650 next week, the plan is to bang it out in 1 day.
