I like the simplicity (air cooling,easily adjusted valves with screw type adjusters,large tank for a 200cc,long track record of reliability etc.). Are you owners really getting close to 100mpg?? If you are, I'm going in this weekend....
for 5"10 or 11, I'd recommend something bigger. I think it'll be too small for you. maybe a KLX250 (new ones) for your height.
