5'8" and I have ridden everything from a Triumph Scrambler to an HP2. Only 28" inseam. Anything is possible if you have even a little skill.

At 5'6 I´m one of those vertically challenged trying to tip toe a 800 GS around. Low seat option makes life a bit easier for me.

First time I climbed on the bike I thought it felt huge, me coming from the sportbike side of motorcycling. As reference, a Yamaha R6 I raced fitted me perfectly.

I´m adapting though, and everyday riding is no problem. But I´m keeping away from the tricky stuff until I´ve got crash bars mounted.

A little cramped but manageable. Santa brought me 20mm bar risers but I haven't had a chace to try them out. Looking to lower the pegs as soon as I recover from Christmas.

6'4" 36" inseam
`92 TDM 850 with 1" thick saddle pad and sheepskin makes it fairly comfortable.

KTM 950 SE fits me perfect, :sigh... someday...
