    6’3”

    I just put a deposit down on a 2018 GT, sight unseen. I am 6’3” with a 34” inseam. I hope I did not make a big mistake. Are there any members my size with GTs? How’s the fit? I would have tried it out myself, but the dealer is 3 1/2 hours away. Which brings me to my next question. Is the GS-911wifi useless with the 2018 model at this point? The chart on the website shows “Future” for all features for 2016-2018 models. I have read through the entire forum in the last couple of days and have not found anyone quite my size. There was one member 6’2” who seemed happy.

    Carl does it have the heated seat option because that seat height is 31.7" or not heated which is the low seat option and is 30.9" but either seat height should be fine for you. Not sure about the GS-911 on 2018 models. Maybe someone on here will chime in.

    Thanks Bornfree, I was afraid of that. It’s amazing to me that they have the hardware and can’t get the software sorted in two years. I hope they get it figured out, I want to be able to do my own maintenance and shut off dummy lights. My dealer is too far away (and I trust myself more. No offense to the dealer whom I don’t know).

    I'm 6'1" with a 34" inseam as well and it fits great. I have just over 55k miles on it so I've done just a little seat time . Congrats and post pictures!

    Thanks David, that makes me feel better. I was hoping Corbin would offer something to allow more legroom, but perhaps I should give it 50,000 miles and see how I feel about it then.

    I'd definitely recommend either a different windscreen or Laminar lip. At our height, the wind hits right in the middle of your face shield even with the screen in its full extended position. I have a lip on mine because there weren't aftermarket windscreens available at the time. Make for a MUCH more enjoyable experience.

    I ordered an Aeroflow tall screen. Should be sitting on my front porch right now. I also ordered a Utopia back rest. Should have that Monday. Supposed to pick up the scooter Saturday, but Erie is supposed to get anywhere from 5-16” of snow tomorrow, so hopefully I don’t have any trouble getting out of town with the Uhaul trailer.
