One or two people I know who have seen me on my bike say I am way to big for it? I feel fine on it, but sometimes, I do feel big..

I am 6"3'

Are these one of the same people who are 5.5' riding a goldwing? I'm 6' and my bike is plenty big for me.

Nothing much bigger, unless you want a goldwing, I work with a guy thats 6'1 and rides a honda shadow, he looks a little big, opinions are like [email protected]@holes everyone has got one, he just wishes he had one.....

Well I've seen some motorcycle gang members (no club names ??? ) and some are 300 + lb and sitting on their Harley's. They look like me sitting on a kids two wheeler. Is someone going to go up to them and tell them they look to big for their bike? ;D

5'10" here and my bike fits me well ...... however I would love a 3" forward control extension to stretch my legs out a bit more.

For those of you with the 3" extension, how hard is it to use the controls? Was it a lot to get used to. I came off a crotch rocket to this bike and having my feet in such a different position was something to get used to. I love the bike now and am much more confident on it. Just thinking that another 3" forward may throw me for a loop again

6'5"... I've joined MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) about 2 years ago and they still have trouble pairing someone up with me so I always end up with the instructor who beats the living crap outta me! :mad:

Same, I still find myself on occasion putting my feet straight down when I am taking off from a sign, only to realize theres no pegs

I am 6'2. I am always worried about whether I look like a gorilla on a tricycle. I really felt that way on my vstar, not as much on this bike. The thing is if you look at the bikes specs it is comparable in size to most bikes in it's catagory. and when I am parked next to other cruisers it doesn't seem small and in some cases looks bigger.

If your used to a sport bike you always want to put your feet down but there is no pegs there.
