How many people can actually do it. No damn way I can, besides my chest hitting the tank and my arms not bending that far. I had my neck fused 2 years ago limiting my head movement. So I take most people can do it though, eh?

Same here. I prefer to look just over the top of it. On cold nights I ride home like that without moving most of the way. I seem to have a problem with the inserts in my jacket as my elbows tend to hurt before anything else.

I haven't ridden the new model yet but I can tuck completely under the stock screen of my 04.
Then again, I'm about as thick as a sheet of construction paper too.

I only tuck low enough whereas the wind is directed completely over my head. And this is a rare case, only if I'm getting cold or its a really windy day making my head bobble all over the place.

Other than at the races though, the only time I see it is when some kid is zooming down the interstate in full tuck with his hair and t-shirt blowing in the wind behind him. :lol I never figured out how they managed to go that fast without losing a sandal. :scratch

I am 6' 190 and I can get low enough to see through the screen. You are supposed to get your ass all the way back. Your chin should be way behind the tree. Some of you need to stretch out or something, lol.

To the guy who fused his neck, was that because of an accident or was it elective (some bodybuilding thing)?

Elective, wtf? Nah bro, I doubt if anyone would get there neck fused electively. I ruptured a disc in my neck C6-C7level and had to get it done.

5'6" and I can tuck and see through the windscreen. You do have to mvoe you butt back a bit tho. And I've only done it a handful of times. Most of the time my eyes are barely above the windscreen. I dont like looking through the windscreen too much.

side by side K3 vs K6

it almost looks like the 06 screen is taller, but the 03 has more width to it. still, the 03 is way easier to get behind that screen.

on the 06, i couldn't see how anyone could even bother to tuck on it. it's almost not functional.
