My experiences are with goldwings, Suzukis, beemers. The seat height from the ground was lower, the foot pegs were underneath the seat and I generally had a foward leaning crouch which thrashed my back quickly.
I noticed the riders were generally shorter than me.
I found the touring bikes to just be fancy versions with added accessories. Otoh, my dresser sitting on a couch for posture.

For a long time, you could put car tires on a harley rim or even lace a spoke caddillac rim for those high horsepower versions.
casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.
