Mac,

Thanks for the details and know from my own "seat" experience those percentages as well as a slightly larger engine can be felt.

My suggestion is to ride RodP's Foreman he's tinkering on and see how you like it. It will be close to the later 420's in size.
if your the king of midgets at 5'10",, than what am i?, at 5' 3", when i get stretched a bit by the chiropractor? LOL
[though i did make it to 5', 3.75" when i was young. now i seem to be shrinking, 5' 2.5" showed up on one measurement. that upset me more than the major stroke, i had] LOL+
I've learned being under 6" weeds out a lot of the shallow, stupid women.

"Don't call me if you're under 6"" says the 300 pounder who wears so much makeup she looks like a circus clown.

This seems to be a fairly recent phenomenon. My grandfather was 5' 6" on a good day. Wore a size 7 shoe. Flew B29's off of Tinian. Larger than life.

The downward spiral of western civilization continues.

@SamUK I am also 6'2" and ride a 300. I don't find the knees acting up just yet after riding all day. What am I looking forward to as I put more mileage on the lower bendy parts? Am I going to have to move to the Goldwing of quads at some point?

@mac102004 I’m guessing your not vertically challenged then? Lol.
@bullfoot I’m only 31 but I cramp up if I stay in one position for quite some time, my left knee does hurt also after a while, I don’t know why, possibly an old injury, it also affects me if I kneel down spannering for too long.

Look after your knees, trust me, I wish I had listened when I was told that!!
