Im 6 foot exactly and I feel cramped on my 650 Classic after about an hour. the fact that 5' 0" can ride just fine explains that. (my inseam is 34") !
Im going to mod my seat this spring with a bit more foam to keep me from sliding forward, and to put a tail bone groove down the center, which should bring me up and back a bit.
I never ride for more than a few hours at at time, and I do like squeaking out 59.999 mpg commuting, but if I ever decide to go long distance riding I will definitely want a bigger bike, and a windshield and fairing.
Maybe I should not say this out loud here, but I have always been fond of the early Goldwings, up to about 1200. For an engineer the boxer engine is the ideal design for a multi piston engine.
EDITED: my bike is a 2005 650 Classic...
