yea you're as tall one. woodcraft rearsets would probably help you out some, but they're a bit pricey. you can fit a 170 stock for sure, maybe a 180 but i'm not 100% on that. with a 636 swing arm you can most def mount a 180.

rearsets

and i wanna say that the guys at BRP sell the full swingarm conversion kit for about $500. it does come with everything you need including the rim.

oh well if you're really that uncomfortable on your bike and think you'd be better off on something else, go for it.

That's an Option I didnt think about either, my dad has a 919 and it's really fun to ride. Other then not coming with a wind screen the bike is great.

if you are looking for something bigger then Go sit on a Busa zx14 and a VFR interceptor. all of which have fatter tires and a fat seat you might feel better on. But like most have said that 650 is enough bike for anyone and it is really comfortable

If your legs are tight on the 650R, you will be even worse on a 600/750/1000 SS. Sounds like you just need to get more comfy on the bike instead of looking for another one.

Not sexy street bikes but the big guys really like the V-Strom 1000 and Ulysses. They do everything you need to do on the freeway and you'll be comfortable as .

most ignorant comments of the year.

you obviously have no respect for other riders and their choices of bikes. sounds like just another poser with a "stuntbike"

actually you didn't say you didn't like them....you said it was "a stupid choice" for him buying one.

i tell you what though, i don't like the way ninja 250's or sv650's look either....but i still bought one to ride for the handling and learning curves they offer (even bought my sv650 AFTER i've owned 600's and 1000's)....kinda like tellin people who wanna stunt to start out on fiddy's. not a stupid choice.

just sayin man....some comments could be left unsaid.

the hornet is bad n its very comfy for taller / big ppl. I was just wonderring as they are making the newer bikes very compact and faster than before. However I was just wonderring if you would feel better in a older model of sportbikes as back then the bikes were bigger n fatter ..lol maybe from 1999 -02 gsxr 600/750, cbr 600 f4i, even the ninjas zx7r, 9r... my $0.02but what do I know...im no expert. I just hope u get what u r looking for :-)

50's suck for stunting.
