    I'm 6'1, 34" inseam. That knocked out most of the smaller cruisers for me. The Ninja 250 wasn't even on my radar as a consideration until a salesman said "Try sitting on this."

    I saw this thraed on another forum:
    http://www.beginnerandbeyond.com/vb/...%271+34+inseam

    It really shows how I would look sitting on just about any of these bikes; he's the same height and inseam as me.
    2011 Triumph America, made perfect with another Corbin Seat.
    (sold) '08 Ninja 650R with super-comfy Corbin seat
    (sold) '06 Ninja 250R, possibly best learning-bike ever.

    Thats a great set of pix ...Thanks for the info !
    You see a man and you think you know him, but you will never know his thoughts, dreams or passion, you will never know whats in his head.
    The mans mind is all his, never to be revealed to any one but himself !

    he fits a lot better on those bikes than I do...

    If i wanted something other than a KLR650 I'd be doing a custom seat with modified pegs locations.
