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
"tank" .

6'2" F800GS. But I can also fit on a 110cc pit bike with no bother.
I like my bike because I can overtake 4x4s down farm tracks with a week's worth of shopping on the back.

6' tall, 31" inseam. 2007 Buell Ulysses Xb12X with factory seat.
When sitting forward on the seat, both feet are flat on the ground.

The 06 Ulysses was about 1.5" higher seat, I could ride one but I like the lower seat on the 07 better. Flat feet works out better when you need to stop and your riding 2 up.
