How tall you are

Post by tomasn » Tue Jun 07, 2016 5:45 pm

Every time sitting or riding in tight slow speed stuff on SE, I think, how bloody tall is my KTM. Before I never ever had problems like this. My both feets are on the ground, but quite unstable. I am 189 cm with long legs :)
How tall are others members of forum?

I saw this video, I agree, that height doesn't matter, when you on road or fast gravel, but in tight slow sections short legs means problems

The seat on KTM500EXC is higher than a 950SE.

Just a bit narrower, and the suspension compresses when loaded with rider sag.
