What is your inseam measurement?

Somebody requested an inseam poll in the height poll thread, so here it is.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Mine's 32" and I'm finding the bike a tad high with the gel seat on, even without the rubber bumpers. I haven't done anything to lower it yet, but I may.

The bike fits me fine, especially when I turn my head and cough.

At my age and joint stiffness and 27" inseam, I am finding a conflict between needing more knee room between seat and pegs and less between seat and ground. I manage. By the way, GW, I voted as having 30" inseam before looking up how to actually do the measurement. Sorry for screwing up your data. Initially I measured to the floor instead of to the bottom of my ankle. Gives you an idea how important shopping for clothes has been for me.

I was thinking the size on well fitting pants.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

30" inseam here and I reckon that is the lower limit to put one sure foot down in all terrain for the Vee or a Wee with Vee seat.

And then add 2" to the length to avoid ride-up over your boots. Forgot about that when I got my new pants as I had only ever used leathers which of course tuck into the boots and don't ride up.

32" when I buy Jeans, so 32 it is. At a stop I can touch with both feet, not flat foot, and a tri-pod stop is not neccessary, I am using a stock 650 seat, spencer modified. My a$$ still hurts after 2 hours
