Ridephat is over 6'. Check his gallery. also, the tallboy seat helps give you more leg room.

I'm 6'2" and have no problems. Have pictures of the bike but not of me. I'm happily married though...

I'm 6'1". No problems here. After 2 yrs, I went to V-Mod drag bars so as not to be so hunched over and I plan to get a CFR seat someday for a little more leg room. Max is taller than me and does fine with the CFR seat and extended reach controls (flipped reduced reach controls previously - now he has home made extenders).

6'2" and happy with mine. You do have to make the bike fit you IMHO. I added forward extended controls and a seat that was lower and sits a little further back.

I resemble that inquiry...
I'm a "big boned" 6'4" and have long legs... ...I also have an '04 VRSCA and the forward controls set me in the most comfortable position I've ever had in 30+ years of riding. I'm still almost daily visited by a big ole smile at the stability and control at ultra low speed, as well as with leaning over the airbox cover at triple digits... For me I could not go back to the SuperBike Croutch for any reason now... What model do you have?

Bike fit

I am 6'2" and have the Arlen Ness forward controls and am running rizoma bars and have no problems. I have a picture of myself riding the bike in my gallery.
