Hey guys-

Just signed up for the site. This place has some great info. I previously had a M109 but have always loved the look of the jackpot and hammer models. I love the fat rear-end. I sold my bike prior to having twins and moving to FL for work. Now I am dying, especially living in such a great climate.

As I am looking at what I want to do, I am up in the air as to whether I want to go with a pre-owned with low mileage or buy new. I have narrowed it down to either the jackpot or hammer. What I was wondering, as you can see by my thread title, how do you tall folk find the comfortability of the two models? I am an ex-college football player (d-line) who still avidly lifts. I am just under 6'-2". My wife is 6' foot tall as well. Just wanted to give you a quick overview. . .

I liked my 9 and it was comfortable but on long hauls, I would have liked the peg positions to be a bit farther out to stretch the legs. I am assuming the same will be said about the vics???

Anything else that you can throw in, advise, inform, etc. . . I'm all ears!!!!!

Thanks guys & gals.

6'1".

Went with the vision due to the rider room for me and my passenger.

Haven't regretted one bit.

Love my vision.

6'3" Wife is 5'9". Both Have the leg room but the Batwing Pegs would be great just to kick the foot forward a little bit. My only complaints are the seat (getting sent to Mean City Cycles this winter) and no gas gauge. Other than those.. I love the Jackpot :grin

I'm about 6'1" and wanted an Ultra Classic. Had a 2002 GoldWing. Got the XCT and there are no regrets. I would even buy another one.

Im looking at picking one of these up as well in the next few weeks. I am 6'3". I rode it a few times and i think the seat and bars need to be changed, but other than that, loved the bike.

I'm 6'. I added the two inch foot peg extensions which helped and are good for me. I know there are some 4' extensions out there from certain vendors. My guess would be that those would be the best fit for someone 6'2". Love my Jackpot.

I have a JP and I'm 6'5" and installed the four inch forward control extensions from witchdoctors and along with drag bars I have no issues with leg room on the bike. I have No complaints whatsoever.

6' - 3 63/64"

Got the 4" extension, comfortable enough ....

I put my handlebars exactly the same rake as my fork, and that works for me too ....
