Go Cheep!! Used Wee Strom. Install fork springs and a shock spring to get ride height back to correct spot.



Spend savings on great riding gear, MSF class then a more advanced riding class later.



Then save your salt wheels for whatever blows up yer skirt later on down the road.



Me, I'm raisin' it up, flaxin' it down & puttin' it in a little white box I can sell up town!



Dental floss that is.

The Hyosung and GS500 might be a bit cramped for leg room for someone 6'4. I'm only 6', and my GT250 (naked) has just enough leg room for me to be comfortable. The GS500 has about the same legroom (at least that is what it felt like to me) but the rest of the bike is much smaller than the GT250.



There is a little less leg room on my GT250 naked than the naked SV. (Again, that's what it feels like to me)

You should look at the new KLR 650. Great bike, inexpensive, and just fun to ride. I am 6'5", 34" inseam and ride a KLR 650 and a BMW 1150 RT. Did a two week 5,000 mile jaunt from Oklahoma to California and back this summer on the BMW and was very comfortable.

Have a Cee Bailey windshield and a custom Rick Meyer seat on the BMW and a Corbin seat on my KLR. Love both bikes.

Had one of these. To this day one of the sexiest bikes made. Someone 6'4" may appreciate the stretch to the bars, but not the knee bend.
