Saying HI from Gaithersburg.
Bought my gray bike from Romney Cycles in WV for a good price.
My forum name, TooTall, reflects my height, 6 foot 6 with a 36" inseam.  I have a Vstrom 650 that I've modified to fit me perfectly.
Now I need to do the same for this bike. Not so easy since its new to the market.
If you have any suggestions on mods for a tall rider, let me know.

Welcome to the forum. I am only 6' tall and find the taller windscreens to be helpful. There is the Cal Sci one and the ErMax one, and Powerbronze now has a shorty version. The Cal Sci one has quality hardware and works well, but has a blueish/purplish hue when looking at it from the side (not a show stopper). The ErMax has a doublebouble type shape (me likey) and should work good, but the availability is not good yet (selling mostly in Europe).
