Welcome Claudio. The V 1000 is a fun machine. Give one a test drive when you get a chance and let us know what you think.

I was wrong - 36" is 914mm.

I 'swapped' bikes on a ride w/ a guy on a KTM 990 (Enduro...?), and it had the HIGHEST seat I've ever ridden! I ALMOST dropped it as I came to a stop - I'd forgotten that I had to 'slide' my butt till only one cheek was on the seat to get my left foot down....
