I'm on my tip toes when stopped at a stop light (Sidi Adventure Boots) and since I ride alone, offroad where the the surface is uneven the thought of riding down a two track just to run into a narrow section with barbed wire on either side and a locked gate with tall grass just didn't sound like fun to me.

I've not rode anywhere that the taller suspension was needed but a revalve sure is.
I'm 6'8" with a 40" inseam, that's why I am waiting for the 1190 Adventure R to come to the U.S.
I'd be unstoppable if not for Law Enforcement and Physics !
When your 6'8" with a 40" inseam, the bikes that fit you are limited ! ! !
