I think only DakarB has me beat.

6'2 with a 36" inseam and gorgeous. I have outriggers on any machine running!

Many bikes have been written off due to these legs. I once had to turn down a great deal on one of those old Yamaha Ventures because I would have had to cut three inches off the fairing to get my knees behind it!!!

I ride a 02 RoadGlide with multiple foot placement options (Awesome bike for 40,000 well used miles so far), and a KLR for local kicks and climbing the mountain trails in Iowa. TG

5'8" with a 32" inseam and seat height is never an issue as long as you keep moving forward...

6'6" 38" inseam, 91 ST1100 or 99 Tiger or my 'lil 79 DT250. I can flat foot them all, though I can almost use my knees to touch the ground on the DT.

6'4 35" inseam, KLR fits me well love the bike but needed more highway power. Just picked up a Strom 1000 but will have to wait for thaw to really enjoy it. Oh well I can sit on it and go Vroom.

6'3" with 36 inseam. Honda transalp '89. Raised the bike with XR650L forks in the front and Africa Twin RD07 swingarm and suspension links in the rear. All that not because the bike is too small, but just to get that Dakar type ground clearance.
Reading this thread, it's good to see that ADV riding is an "XXL mans sport" .
