Randy - I'm the same size as you. I joined the club about a week after you. I told everybody that I'm the size of Shrek, but I smell twice as bad. I had to move the handlebars up as when I do a tight turn like in a parking lot, the handlebar would trap my leg between the bar and the tank … if I didn't remember to move it out of the way first.
And, I've had a problem with the bottom of my pant leg getting caught on the peg when attempting to put my foot down. It didn't cause me a problem, but might have if I had freaked out. I'm loving my Rebel so far … as small as it is. I will be doing some other comfort mods shortly. And WOT tuning fairly soon.
I'm going to put forward controls on it, plus I'm going to make some brackets that will stand my rear seat up and have it serve as a driver's backrest. I don't need the rear seat. It's too small, and the bike is slow enough with just me on it. So, the rear seat would be better served as a driver's backrest.
Flitecontrol - I didn't know the driver's seat would move any farther rearward then how mine came. I'll be looking into that.
