i am 6'4" tall. i would like to ask the opinion of anyone out there who is that height regarding seating position, leg length issues, arm length; comfort and control-especially in slow speed u-turns. i am very seriously thinking about buying a Gold Wing-i can take it for a test drive, but i wanted to know what it feels like after 6-8 hours on the road for someone of that height. thanks

hello and welcome to GWOF mozeman. sorry i'm not your height but what ever bike you decide to get you'll need at least a custom seat to feel comfortable

i have a custom seat on my 1500 wing and use a gel pad just to raise me up 3/4 of an inch. the seat is comfortable without the gelpad but too low

I am about 6'5" and tip the scales at about 275lbs. I have an 85 limited and love the bike. I have not yet taken long trips, (will this summer) butr would like to comment on low speed turns. Coming back from a ride with my wife, (talking about 530 lbs approx rider and passenger), I have no problem making a slow speed u turn on our side street, and without putting a foot down or even taking it off the peg. WAY nicer than any bike I have had before. A good seat is a must for long trips, and highway pegs are a good idea. Sometimes my hips will cramp, having someplace else to put my feet helps.

Take a look at the King seat from ultimate seats. Am ordering one next week. I am 6' 2" and go 270 (for now) I am in my 60s and the old legs don't work like they used to.
May end up ordering a trike kit.
