Thx for getting back to me with all the info I was looking for. At this point, and maybe for the reason that it is 1" taller, I think I'll stick with the CB. It has worked well for me although I wish I had gone with the #2, -4 instead of the -3. In fill down position I don't have any problem seeing over the shield (5' 9", 29" inseam). But when I reise it up to take the pressure of my helmit, I can just we over the top - barely!
Maybe rev 2 will implement you suggestion to reduce the backpressure and I will be ready to upgrade. My CB only has about 5K miles on it and is in perfect condition so another minor reason to hold onto it for a while.
Will you be at the Rally in VT? If so, hope to run into you.
Thx again for taking the time ti share you info.
