im 6'2" and weigh about 230. i am not fat or anything, just big. do taller riders tend to find the R6 (or any sport bike) kinda uncomfortable? did you get used to it?

my friend is 6'4 and he rode my R6 a few times.. said his legs were too cramped.. he weighs about 280 as well....
so he bought a Honda 919 instead of an R6 :sing

I'm 6'1 230, hopped on the 6 feels ok to me...got on an 05 o6 and it feels different because it's bigger but the new ones are fine. Like anything else I beleive its just conditioning

I'm 6'2" 155, and feel a little cramped on my 05 after almost 3 years of riding it. I've sat on the 06-08 r6's, and feel even more cramped. The new R6 is very uncomfortable to me, and the seat seems too wide. Plus, I hate the look of the side exit exhaust. That's why I'm going with an 07 cbr1000. >8^)

6'2 205lbs here.

I felt the most comfortable on the R6 than i did any other bike because of the tall stance of the newer R6's.

However on longer rides in excess of about 100 miles, my back and knees need a break.
