    *****FZ6 Riders: How Tall Are You?*****

    Hey guys, I am inches away from buying my first 2008 fz6 and need your help for the final push! I have sat on it a couple times but have not seen myself in the saddle. I am 6'3 and 200 lbs and worried that I am going to make the bike look small. If anyone who is as tall or taller could give me some advice, or even post a pic/video of them on the bike it would help me out so much! Thank you all in advance. Have had a great time getting to know you on the forum.

    I'm 6'2 and my FZ feels great... Don't know about the weight aspect as I only weigh around 150 lbs...

    And who cares if the bike looks small as long as you are happy with it.

    If you can take one out for a test ride to see how you fit on top of it.

    Yep, your going to look like a monkey doing the nasty to a football

    If you like the way it feels then don't worry about how you look on it, doesn't matter as long as you are comfortable and enjoy riding the machine

    There was a thread on this forum about the average height.

    http://www.600riders.com/forum/fz6-g...fz6-rider.html - plenty of tall guys riding FZ6 here

    I'm 6'3, 220 lbs. I think it fits me perfectly, except, maybe i'll raise handlebars for touring. As for looks - well, it's subjective. Personally - i don't care what somebody thinks, but i haven't heard from my friends that it's too big for me (and they wouldn't miss an opportunity to make fun of me if i did)

    Smersh thanks for the thread and info! I did do some research and found that info on here but also thought a poll would be cool to see all the data gathered and organized. Thanks again! Still would love to see some riding photos
