Here's a pic my Dad took the day I took possession of it. I look bigger on it than I feel. I kinda hoped I wouldn't be flat footed while on it. I know I'm not on a stock KLR650 with it being 1.9 inches taller. Does the rear end look shortened?
I'm 6' 2" with 33 inch inseam and weight about 220lbs. I'm definitely more legs than torso!
The real sucky part about getting this bike is I gave away all (except helmet) my riding gear in March/April when I sold my VN900. I had a nice waterproof jacket, riding gloves and a FirstGear Torrent 40L duffle bag (really nice bag for the money and is just about everything-proof). So, I gotta penny pinch for a while to get another jacket, pair of gloves, a full-face helmet and some sort of water-proof luggage.
BTW, I'd like to promote the dealer I bought the bike from. Shop is called Bobz Bikz (www.bobzbikz.com
) located in Kingman, KS. I have bought 90% of my bikes from them and they are good people. When I bought my Versys, I had asked about tires and service. They emailed me back telling me they were going to do a full service and put on new rubber front and back! They didn't charge me anything extra for the work. They asked $4500 for it, which is below NADA low retail. These folks are not shy about pointing out flaws found on their bikes either. So, I have to give them a big
! I highly recommend them!
