Oh No...

How Tall? Used to be taller, but over the years, have been worn down to a nub.

What Beast? I wouldn't let her hear you call her that, if I were you.

6' flat with legs that are so long they just look silly on me. 35" inseam, WTF.

I'm currently on an 97 Virago with 62k, and an '04 Wee-Strom with 50k. The Wee is in the process of being modded (seat and pegs) to make it more comfortable.

5'8" with a 29" inseam (I'm built like a chimpanzee ), KTM 990 SM-T (not technically a "beast", but...). The 855mm seat height is just about as high as I'd want to go.

Being tall is what drew me into dual-sports - on most bikes, I look like the proverbial monkey with a football.

I'm 6'3", 35" inseam. Currently have a Wee, fits me fine. Awaiting delivery on my new 800GS, might need lower pegs or a taller seat (and definitely needs a taller screen).

Other ADV bikes I've tried:

DR650 - fits fine
KLR650 - fits fine
R1150GSA - fits fine
XB12X - Too cramped for my legs
F650GS Dakar - Seat too close to bars
XTZ660 Tenere - Too cramped for my legs
Scrambler - Too cramped for my legs
620 Multistrada - Too cramped for my legs...

Spotting a trend here?!
