Too tall

Hey guys...need some opinions. I'm 6 foot tall and can fit on the 250 no problem.

I have a friend that is 6' 3" and is considering a 250...

Any riders that tall on the forum?
He's wondering if his knees will fit under the lip on the tank when his feet are in the pegs, or if his legs will have to be more wrapped around the tank above the lip.

Inseam is a bit over 34"

Any opinions?

Thnx CMax...does your bike have the noticeable lip on the tank?

Do your knees fit under that lip or alongside it?

that's not my bike in the picture, but it's the exact same model, year, and color as mine

I'm 6'0" and have plenty of room. My knees don't even go all the way up to the lip.

I've met guys that are 6'6" and ride this same model bike and love it.

lol well that's why they finally changed it. It's definitely not a head turner unless you like the classic style motorcycle. The one reason I bought it as opposed to the newer ones was because it has even more of an upright touring style than the newer gens, and I planned/plan on traveling really far on it a lot.

maybe you can do all that on the 08+, but I knew for sure that I could on an '07. Plus I only paid $1500 for it, so I'm happy lol

Yes, I do have the "lip" under my tank, my legs are 1 or 2 inches below that.
And I too like the newer style ninjas but I also got a good deal on mine.
907 miles on it for $2,300 it has never been dropped almost in perfect condition.

I'm very happy with my purchase!
