turns out the bike must have already been lowered at some point. I jumped on it after our 3 hour drive and it was perfect!

Horrible short joke!!! :rofl

Although, I will say the Daytona Frey Ladystar boots... love them! It's almost like wearing stilts on the bike, but you don't look like a dork.

yeah, I'm kinda thinking that a 650 is too big. Of course, that's all relative. If I was only going to ride on the road, I'd be fine. But, because I want to ride some trails, etc. I'm shying away...

I've also sat on the CRF230L and liked that. Guess I'm just a bit vain though and didn't like the looks of it. The XT styling is just a bit more neutral.

I will check on the Anchorage find......
