    Tall rider pics?

    I have been reading a lot about the TW200 lately and it looks like a LOT of fun. There seem to be a lot of tall people riding them as well. Unfortunately I am not really able to find a lot of pics of tall people ON the bike.

    Any 6-foot plus riders with pics on the bike?

    THANKS, JJ
    Whatever

    Rhodetrip - thanks... yep, it does look a bit small! But I rode a KLR250 for a while. I guess it is just a bit smaller. Sure looks like a FUN bike.

    6'2", I have no pics of myself, but there are a few of me and taller gents in the Moab threads.
    Bar risers with ATV handle bars along with larger foot pegs is all you need.

    I'm 6'1", all arms and legs, and it's surprisingly not a cramped riding position.
    Especially when you see one, in person, and it looks small.

    But then you sit on it and it feels good to start with.

    Add a taller seat, bars and maybe risers it's a very nice ride.
    Also it can carry a decent load and not become unstable and it's still able to move along.

    With all the donuts littletommy says he eats; his doctors weight/height chart must put him at well over 7'. Shame on me!
