For other Rune junkies only

I have this vid on my desktop and watch it often (tip: you GOTTA put it on full screen). Given up ever owning one but at least I can look.

I had a Rune, bought it new, and kept it three years. First, it was a very beautiful piece of work. Second, it was the most uncomfortable bike I have ever owned. I have had 26 bikes, with my wife, and usually I can come up with a solution for any seating problems. Not this time. I ordered a seat, I made a seat, I made a set of handlebar attaching brackets, and I gave up. On the other hand, I have had four Valks, only one needed any adjustment (a lowering kit for the I/S) and all were very comfortable. So, you just cain't never tell.

Comfort is king, no doubt, but I must admit I'd be prepared to make some exceptions for this baby! Personally, I think a lot of guys 'sit wrong' on motorcycles. It's a bit counter-intuitive but I find 'horse jockey' up close to the tank better than the laid back 'Captain America' style. Takes a bit of perseverance initially but has been well worth it in my experience. Saves the butt, saves the back and saves the shoulders coz you're not 'reaching' for the bars.

What is it about the Rune that has you lusting for one? Performance? Styling? or something else? (Bike porn if there is such a thing)

Me: Mr. Geepers, what exactly causes Rune lust?

Geepers: Dude, if you gotta ask, you 'aint got it. I gots it, but either don't know why or am to embarrassed to admit it. Here's a misplaced Fats Waller anecdote instead.
