As the average size in 5'10 they have pitched the bike for this size and for the many people smaller.
I am 5'7 and have only sat on one at the moment but now know that there is a bike like this that I can control comfortably. Puting my feel down securly if I need to.
Last year I hired an off road Yamaha 250 trials bike to go around Easter Island and struggled every time I stopped.
It seems that they make Adventure/off road bikes for giants and sports bikes for midgets.
At last the Adventure/off road mould has been broken and there is a bike for smaller than average people.
When the weather improves I will book a test ride then try to persuade the Mrs to let me have one.
Not annoyed at all, I tried I didn't like so shan't buy
Life is that simple, my comments are for all sizes of persons reading
who may wish to buy an Triumph Tiger 800XC, so they can make informed decisions on how they spend their money.
Which is what this forum is all about
Some people just read into comments stuff that is not there!
For now I'll stay firmly at the top of my beanstalk, fee fi fo fum I smell the blood of a Triumph Man........
