Yep same for me. 6'4" 34-35 inseam. The C650GT was designed for me and my bad knees and hip. It was embarrassing at the dealer when I got on the 1200 and needed a box to get down. I'm 72 race sailboats and am very active. This bike with its front mounting is perfect for me as I relive my college days on a Honda Hawk 305.At 6'2", 33-34 inseam, 35-36 sleeve, the C650GT feels like it was made for me. I have found nothing anywhere near as comfortable, especially with my right hip being "aged" more so than the rest of me and my desire to have an around town bike that can fill in as a tourer. I, too, really like the ability to move my feet around. Personally, I even find the stock seat very comfortable. Now, to find a decent tunnel bag.
At a big show in town recently I questioned a senior Yamaha rep about the missing ABS. His position which I find so lame was that 8 of 10 North Americans still don't want ABS. That may be what Harley guys say but I would bet any money that 8 of 10 (if not more) scooter folks would opt for ABS. I think it was nothing more than a scripted response knowing they tried to keep the price down and then realized it was a mistake!If they still bring it in next year, it'll probably have ABS standard, as the Euro4 laws will require it on all bikes sold and it would make no economic sense to have a special stripped model for a market as small as ours. As of now, it's optional in some countries (the U.K., etc.), and not even offered in North America...
