The 87-07 Ninja 250 is actually pretty confortable in the upright position for me. Its not as bent over as an "actual" sport bike. I am 6'1, 185 lbs and I am pretty confortable during hour+ trips. The only thing that may benefit you is to either reshape the seat or by a new one(cross country ninja 250 owners do it). The seat is fine for 30 minute rides, but you start to get "hot butted" a little bit after that.... atleast with my height and weight.

If you have to use your brakes, you are driving too fast!
