Default Tall fit on an Indian

Would love to slap down a retainer for a new Indian. I have yet to hear reviews on how it fits a tall person. Anyone out there 6' 4" or so with input?

Thanks

They have a few of the older models here:

I think it's pretty similar. Though I noticed the Chieftain is the more compact with a seat height of 26" vs the Vintage seat height of 29".

TY very much. Seems the 2011 Chief would be a better fit than my KP. Hopefully the 2014 is too.

They now list the 2014 Chiefs.

Seems it is not a good fit for a tall rider. I canceled my order.

I sat on the Chieftain in Sturgis a couple days ago. (didn't have enough time to wait in line to ride it though - that was a damn popular demo section of the show).

It is definitely a tighter fit than my XC. I am only 6'2" with a 34" inseam, but I do like to stretch out when cruising. I'm sure some highway pegs would work fine, but I would put this right in between the sizing (from a normal riding position with feet at controls) of a Street Glide and an XC, where the SG is really tight, and the XC is adequately extended.

I see the Vintage seat height at 26". Ergo site says 27.6". Ergo site tells me they measure height differently.

Just to clarify, an XC with controls in mid position, or with the controls in the forward position?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I was referring to how it comes from the factory in the mid position.

That's a bummer for long legged riders. They did not have them adjustable like on the Cross bikes, did they? It's not a listed feature so I assume it's not an option (you can't blame me for being optimistic).

I think these pics say a lot. This rider does not look that tall but notice where his feet are placed. Halfway off the floor board.
