I'm old and 5 9 so the f650 fits me fine. 10,000 miles, crused across the candian plains at 75 to 85...several 500 +mile days.
I did put on K60s for this trip so it would be better on slick mud with the alaskan rain...yep we had some!
I have the Aeroflow touring wind screen and other aeroflow bits, Jesse bags, etc etc....this give me almost as much weather a fatigue protection as my old RT fairing.
Let us know what you decide
Did the K60's make the whole trip? How are they on the highway?
