Knee pain

Hey y'all, got a odd question. Is there any bikes out there that are new/relatively new that are not bad on the knees? I have been diagnosed with knee arthritis and sometimes can barely bend my knee enough to get on the pegs, but 90% of the time im fine for now. I will have my ninja paid off in may FINALLY... And I am looking at possibly a HD Iron with forward controls, but just wondering if there's any sport bikes that aren't so cramped in the legs. Btw I'm 6'1" if that helps, thanks for any responses.

True Sports Cars have two seats and true Sportbikes are "cramped", an HD with forward controls will give you more leg room and take the stress off your knees

How about a sport touring bike? They are not as cramped as a supersport.

I'm 6'1", and dont feel cramped. I have bad knees, but I dont have problems with bending them (they just shift sideways).

Adjustable rear sets might help a little. otherwise, sport touring bikes, and some nakeds will give you more leg room/controls further forward.

For sure. You can select multiple bikes and just click back and forth, but being able to overlay two bikes would be fantastic. They did upgrade the site once since I first knew about it last year, so you never know.

I waste too much time playing on that site. Wait till you see how Andre the Giant fits on a Ninja 250.
