Default Tall Riders?

Are there any 6' 6" & over XC riders out there? If so, any regrets on buying a XC?

What part of being large is affecting you and your synergy with your XC , if you don't mind me asking ?

While I am (only) 6'3" I believe you will have plenty of room, the only issue being finding the right height windscreen.

I haven't purchased it yet. I'm just looking for a little feedback from others.

Outside of something custom made....there's not another motorcycle available with the room of a Cross Country. The XC is probably the best choice for Sasquatch and extra tall riders.

I'm 6' 5" and one of the big reasons that I love my XC is because it basically has the most room of any motorcycle that you can buy today. I've still never ridden a motorcycle better setup for tall riders than the XC.

You may want to add a larger windshield and highway pegs, but the factory setup with the room around the handlebars and the massive floorboards make everything else seem tiny in comparison.

If you are a large biped , which it sounds like you may be the Vic , like PaiN has mentioned is one of the biggest , roomiest , best handling bikes on the planet .
