How tall are you 600rr fellas

Just curious what the average/min/max height was for you 600rr riders... it's definitely sized for the smaller fellas & chicas (or maybe the average asaian person)?

If the pegs were any higher or the bars any lower I'd definitely have back & knee pain especially after an hour.

edit: damn I messed up the poll can a mod fix it

hahaha, obviously none of you ever sat on a 125GP bike. RR will seem like a Goldwing in comparison.

Thing is that you are looking at a street version of a race bike (hence RR in the name), it was never meant to be comfortable by touring standarts. Nor it was made for chicks or asian midgets.

You want comfort get a VFR, VTR1000F, or whatever WAS DESIGNED for long rides.

I'm 6 foot on it, and I feel great on the bike. I like that it feels "smaller" to me...makes me feel like I'm more in control of the bike.

6'1 and the bike fits me pretty well. After scruntching up on my little ninja 250 I think I can fit on anything. Forget flat footing, I can almost flat knee on that baby.

6'2" here and no problems, the seat is my only comfort complaint. Otherwise I feel right at home on it.

I saw this chick riding a RR in traffic the other day. Everytime she came to a stop, she had to balance on her tippy toes. That must hurt after a couple of hours! I would rather be crunched up on my bike than fully strecthed out.

6 ft and it feels perfect to me, nice and compact. And if I rememeber correctly I think the CBR has the lowest pegs out of the 600's. I actually would have liked them to be a lil higher. I pretty much always have the balls of my feet on the pegs when I ride to and I dont feel scrunched at all.

i hope your talking Gene Simons platforms, not RuPaul platform shoes.

j/k, you'll get used to it after awhile. i got a buddy that rides an RR that's about 5'5". we tease him about starting out from the curb all the time, but it's all in good fun. He actually has no problem at all riding this thing.
