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.
It is said, some lives are linked across time, connected by an ancient calling that echoes through the ages.
Currently riding a 2004 R1150GS Adv. but a very long list of others over the 30 + + years of riding
