seat to peg distance

Really? I'm 6'4" w/34" inseam. I sat on one in a show room 2 weeks ago and thought the seat to peg distance was pretty cramped. Have you lowered the pegs? Raised the handle bars?

I have VIN#0923.
I'm 6'4"-5", 36" inseam. I'm definitely going to be getting a taller seat when one comes available for a reasonable price in the US if I haven't just found someone to do a custom one for me before then.

Other than that I love mine. Can't really say anything that others haven't already said. Smooth ride, greats looks, etc...

I plan to get a set of Buell pegs to lower them. I'm going to talk to a local upholster that thinks he can rebuild my seat and build it up some too.

I actually plan to get a set of lower bars and a cowl. There's a thread on a CB1100 specific forum a guy did using bars off a CB500F with his cowl and it looks awesome.

That WhiteHouse 1100 looks really good, although not as good as my K1. Which is going on the "thining the herd" block by next spring; PM if you're interested.
