Tall dude here

I'm 6'6" and recently purchased a DR-650. So far I have lowered the pegs, raised the handlebars and went to a CR high bend Renthal bar. All have been improvements but not quite the home run I was hoping for. I guess I'm used to my GS1200.

I wanted a KTM690 but was scared off at the price and perceived reliability issues. Next on the list was an XR650L. I tried to buy two different ones but title issues with the seller killed the deals. So I came across on a decent deal on a used but like new DR and bought it. The bike is fun and will do everything I want it to do but I kind of wish I would have held out for the Honda. (18" tire better suspension, taller seat height)

I plan on upgrading the suspension and getting a better seat and then just live with it. It's really not that bad. I will be watching both of your threads for suggestions.

Mike
