Tallest GSXS Riders

I'm curious to know how tall/heavy some you bigger riders are. I never thought I'd be able to get on a bike like this and be comfortable. I'm 6'8" and around 340 lbs. I'll probably lower the pegs a bit but I'm still pretty comfortable with the stockers. Here's a pic to humor you.

I'm a whopping 5'7" and 145 lbs... very intimidating I am.

That bike looks like a little 50cc kid's bike under you, lol.

6'3" here... You win.

But there's something funny about a 6'8" guy at the corner of Darwin street... Maybe it's just me....

I keep complain why the front seat is too large that creates an uncomfortable space between me and my wife and at the same time and the rear one is too small to accommodate her comfortably. After seeing your photo I will stop complain about seat dimension.

See, being a smaller guy is not so bad when it comes to this bike. Finally, an upside, lol.

Nice to hear there's other big guys out riding these bikes too. I'm comfortable and the bike is a blast. Definitely the most fun bike I've ever owned. I can see my Busa getting neglected in the near future.
