    Average height of a FZ6 rider

    I am 6'1" and ride an 08 FZ6 and not long ago a friend said the biked look small for my size. This made me a little self conscience when I ride the bike so out of curiousity what is the average height of an fz6 rider?

    6'1" as well.
    I don't feel too big on it, although, I am looking to upgrade to a bigger bike someday.

    6'1" as well. The FZ6 feels fine. To me, motorcycles should be on the small side. I really don't understand why anyone would want to ride a huge, heavy thing. I want to "ride" my machine, not just sit on it.

    Re: Average height of a FZ6 rider

    I'm a shorty (5'7") and the bike feels just slightly big. I can touch my feet down on both sides pretty well but if the road is canted a little it can get dicey. I like the overall feel while riding though, it fits my upper body very well.

    I notice most people look big compared to their motorcycle. You taller folks might, but it's nothing to worry about. My guess is I look small compared to mine.
