It's a rule I've never seen on another forum for sure. The Admin should really consider removing it.

Ed,
You have to make 5 posts before you can post to all threads. You have 3, a couple more and you're golden. Its an anti spam rule...

Ed,
Assuming you are from Utah as your user ID shows you need to get to Tri-City (Centerville or Springville) and try on a couple of bikes. I'm a few inches shorter than you but that really means nothing as people of the same height usually have different leg/torso/arm lengths. Along with that people will have different opinions of how bikes feel and/or fit.

I have a friend that rides a Road king that he says is comfortable and fits him well. He's about 6'4" and 240 lbs; I'm almost 6'2" and 210 lbs and feel completely cramped on the bike.

Thanks for that Ammo. Since im waiting to see some things fall into place for me, Im simply doing research and question asking. If I go to a dealer before these things fall into place, I would become rather rude and impatient to those around me......hahahaha.
(I still want the wife sitting behinde me)
Most of my height is above the waste, I have long arms and my gurth has never matched well with my inseam (34"), so growing up and finding cloths that fit right was always a little chore.

Again thanks for your input...cheers

I just noticed your in Utah as well.........Im down in the Saint George area, perhaps we will cross paths one day

Regarding the 5 post rule, just for the record, I'm down to banning a user every other day, from banning 5 or more users daily. And since I'm not here all the time, you all have to swim through spam that's spread on the whole forum 'till it gets removed.

Sure it's an inconvenience to get 5 posts in, but it's a small price to pay to have a forum you can enjoy instead of stumbling over spam everywhere you turn. I, for one, hate spam and am happy to live without it.

I'm just 5' 10" and I ride a Cross Country. Love the room that the floor boards give me. Added highway pegs that mounts to the bottom of the boards. Gives my a million different ways to move my feet during long rides.

I ride an older TC that fits a 6 foot 200 lb. like me well. the footboards help me too adjust and move on it to be more comfortable. any way welcome to the forum. Thanks Crossroads for taking the time on the forum to keep the spammers off . It must take alot of your time. keep the shiny side up. thumb up Later

I'm a few hours north of you in Clearfield and hope to get several southern trips in next spring. If your plans include long rides with a passenger I think you should give the Cross bikes a chance. This option gives more seat room, storage and suspension. But you've really got to get some test rides to see for yourself.

Don't worry about ticking off the dealer. Most Victory dealers know that they can't sell these bikes as the bikes do a very good job of selling themselves. Victory is actually very good about demo rides and they encourage potential owners to ride as long as the need (within reason).

I was happy to see a Victory dealer open here in town. I need to try and research who the owners are, and hope its not some of the past owners of the dealer across the street.
I get the impression they dont have alot on hand but I will get a visit in when the weather gets a bit warmer.

Ed,

I'm about 6'4". I mounted a tractor seat on mine. It took some work, but it moved me up 4" and back about 2". The stock seat was pretty cramped. PM me and I'll send you some detailed pics. I love the tech stuff, but I'm just too lazy.
