Just curious how tall yall are and what bike you ride
Me 5'10 Klr 650 & Concours, Soon V Strom 1K
Buell Ulysses XB12X
How Tall? Used to be taller, but over the years, have been worn down to a nub. :huh
What Beast? I wouldn't let her hear you call her that, if I were you. :eek1
Yamaha TDM850 (MkII)
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.
Aprilia Caponord ( really? )
moto guzzi quota 1100
with thick seat pad
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?!
6'3" 34" inseam.Buell XB12X /Honda XR650R in sumo trim.The Uly fits like a glove.My XR650R looks small under me.
5'9" with 30" inseam. Buell Ulysses XB12X. Luckily I have big feet and strong toes.
6'3" 33 inseam r100gspd
5'10" with 31" inseam
5'9" with a 32" inseam, F650GS.
MV handlebar risers and the hi-low seat. I'd prefer the stock single height seat to straighten out my legs a little and keep my nuts off the
6'2" F800GS. But I can also fit on a 110cc pit bike with no bother.
