My exact thoughts!Difference between dirt bike backrounds and performance bike backrounds I think. I've been dirt bikin 40+ yrs with 4 or 5 dualsport bikes thrown in. You get used to all that sitting up, and being able to stand.
My first impression when I threw my leg over demo Multi was "handlebars need to come up" . Of course second impression within a few miles was,
"I'll be getting one of these!!!!!"
The 30mm risers are necessary for standing on these rougher Missouri gravel roads (oh yes I do)
