    Im 6'6" and Im wondering what kind of sport bikes I could fit on. I was looking at the Suzuki SV1000 and SV650. Do you guys think I could fit on an SV650? What other bikes could I fit on? Are there any "sporty" bikes that are good for taller people like me?

    I dont want a cruiser. I just can't get into them for the life of me.

    No good beginners bikes I can think of, I've got a few friends 6'4+ mostly riding Busa's, XX's, TL's, VFR's comfortably, but maybe with the exception of the VFR none are very new rider friendly. Goto the dealer sit on different bikes see what feels right. If the SV doesnt feel good, maybe consider a used katana750 or something that might be roomy enough.

    Thats more encouraging than I thought. I didnt think I'd ever fit on a supersport, but like you said, I need to learn on something. I'll check out the SV1000, and Katanas. Maybe an FZ1.

    I am 6'5" and I ride a zx12-r . Hands down the most comfortable thing I have owned. I have had busa's and cbr's but this is by far a better fit.

    Well a 600 is pretty much out of the question
