Thanks, guys. That pretty much answered my question. At 6'1" and 185 I should have no problem. Great, now I have no excuse not to get one!

6'4" - 225lbs, my Thruxton is the most comfortable street-bike I've ever owned.

BT, i'm sure you can find at least a scrambler or bonnie to sit on at a local dealer no? they're the same size frame/engine... only difference would be pegs, handlebars, and seat height, but will give you a pretty good idea if you will fit comfortably.

I'm out of the country (US) for a bit and there aren't any around here. These pictures answered my question, and I don't think size will be an issue. Also, I used to have a Harley Nightster, and these look like they are a similar size.
