They look amazing in the screenshot but it does raise a concern in my mind. Will I be tall enough to ride it comfortably without having to lower it? I'm 5 foot 6 and the ergonomic aspects of the Africa Twin is a big concern of mine.

I have had similar thoughts, on the opposite side though....will I look like grape ape riding it? how big is it?



I'm 6'-3" but I look like a giant on a KLR.....I fit nicely on my Super Tenere....

It may be tough out of the box but hopefully you can find a lower seat and maybe some lowering links for the rear suspension. Better yet just keep the throttle pinned as your name suggests and you should be fine.:grin2:

I'll just have to find out when the AT is available. And if it can't be lowered, I'll go with your suggestion but only over the perfect ditch.
