Local shop had a bike nite this evening. Stopped in and for the first time they had a 900 custom. So I finally got to sit on one. Question is on the exhaust, found my leg, if I wasn't careful, was often on that heat shield. Is it enough to remind you to get your leg away before your burned? Do after market pipes run closer to the bike body? Or is it really a non-issue once your used to it? Love those customs....other than the exhaust thing felt just right.
