Platforms are the rage.....I have one....not the top of the line though. Eberhart is ring steps only person.....I think someone that's less 200lbs have it easier on their feet....he's a smaller guy. Do you guys just sit in the saddle with little weight on your feet or how do you larger guys handle a ring of steps....JX3 is the exception..LOL. I love the thought of sticks and a ROS together...Bang quick easy and quiet but I've wondered how you ROS guys handle all day sits. Thanks for the responses!
