Welcome. No that riding position is not normal. As previously recommended you may want to put a couple 1000 miles on it before making changes. Then you'll find lot of options.
If you keep an eye out, there usually is a Russell seat up for sale for the GTL. You can grab one of those and see if it works better for you (does for me). You can also take some pictures with you on it and send to Russell Day Long to have them recommend any modifications.
