Hi all! This is my 1st post here. Spent about 5 hours last night here just reading stuff before I decided to register today and get serious.
I am not a new rider, but I do have a question about buying a 250R with my height. I've read the "Tool big for a 250?" thread found here -https://www.250r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=535
but I am not concerned about going 0-60 in 4 seconds and how my weight would affect the bike.
I'm concerned about the fit. I'm 6'2" and 220 lbs. My first (and only bike) I used to ride was a bone-stock 2002 Suzuki Bandit 600S. It had a nice big comfy seat, upright riding position, and plenty of oomph. I've ridden a few loaner SuperSport bikes (Suzuki GSX-R 750 and Buell Firebolt XB12R) and I'm just not feeling the need... the need for speed. I'm looking for a commuter bike and a cheaper "toy" to make me feel like the 60 hours a week I'm putting in at work allows me to enjoy myself once in a while.
I love everything about the 250R... the looks, the price, the 20+ years of positive reviews, etc. I just have 2 questions:
1) Do any tall people out there have issues with the new 250R?
2) Are there any mods that can be done for height / comfortable riding position for taller folks?
Any pictures of you tall people on the bike with your feet off the ground, or even any recommendations to simply "get a bigger physical bike" are fine. I can take the heat. Thanks in advance!!!
