I use this clear film https://www.invisiblepatterns.co.uk/bikes/norton-cafe-racer-2011. It doesn't cover the whole tank, just the areas that you would rub with your knees and pants/zipper. I had to light it up so you can see the outline in the photo but in normal daylight it barely shows.That crossed my mind, I am sitting hard against the back of the tank. Any recommendations without spoiling the lines of the bike?
Yep, my legs tuc in nicely, might even put on tank knee protectors to stop the rubbing
I'm 5'10" and I find the Thruxton R riding position is ok for me but after a couple of years I had to admit defeat with the 961 Cafe Racer and change the clip-ons for the normal bars. For me it was age and knackered joints (mine). So if the low riding position does become a pain, you've always got the option of the standard bars.
