Taller rider wondering about the Wee
Recently I sold my learner bike (1984 Honda Shadow VT700) and am thinking about taking the V-Strom plunge. From everything I've read, I think that I would prefer the Wee. However, I'm wondering if it will be a very comfortable ride for me. I'm 6'3" and weigh around 230 with my riding gear on. My old bike was pretty cramped even with engine guards and highway pegs. More than an hour and I would need to stop for a long stretch break.
Part of my reason for wanting a Wee is to go touring. If it isn't a comfortable fit, I won't want to ride it. My question for you: is a Wee going to be comfortable for me? And if it won't be stock, what would I need to do to get it to fit properly?
