tall and big riders

i was looking at a 05 cbr600 today and as i was sitting on it the bike it felt very small to me(im 6 ft. avg build). Was wondering if this is normal? Also is there anyone that knows which sportbike out of gsxr , cbr , 600's ect. have the most room or are they all really tight like the cbr?

PS. for the guys that are over 6 ft. tall, what sportbikes are most roomey for you?

thx

try sitting on the others, anything besides CBR or R6 should provide ample room if you feel that these two are cramped for you, because the others are a bit bigger in size. Also the older F4i and 2001 Gsxr600s were pretty big compared to today's 600s.

I'm 6'2", ride a 92 Katana and it fits me real nice. I also don't have any problem sitting on my dads track bike (98 cbr f3) or an R1 but I haven't ridden these just sat on 'em. You might be able to get something to relocate the footpegs I've seen brackets that allow you to do that. Might help in your situation.

I'm 6'3" and a half, about 270.

The R1 is small to me. I look like a monkey humping a football when I'm on it.

The nature of things.

My cousin is 6'7", 230 lbs, and the ONLY bike he fits on is an R6.

FYI, the height is ALL leg... his upper body is about the same as mine, and im 5'11"
