Too Tall For Ninja 300? Advice Please
Hey everyone, I'm new here and I'm really considering buying a Ninja 300 next spring (saving up right now) or my first motorcycle at least! I've never rode a motorcycle before, but I have had 2 scooters (both used Chinese pieces of junk, still fun though, but I wouldn't recommend). The first was a simple, light 150cc, and the 2nd was a pretty big, heavy, touring style 250cc. I'm ready for an upgrade come this spring, and the Ninja 300 is my dream!!
However, I have some concerns. My biggest concern is my height. From what I have read about the 300 I am probably too tall for it. I'm 6'2". Is that too tall for the bike? My biggest worry is the high position of the pegs. I don't want to buy a bike that I will be uncomfortable on. Are any of you Ninja owners here 6ft and above? I'd love some feedback and personal experiences.
