Glad to have you aboard, Glenn! What are you riding?

What am I riding?

Hi,

I've had one of the last made 955i Tigers since July 09 and a Kawasaki z650 1978 for 12 years.

The Z has always been to small for me as I'm 6ft 8 1/2.

I joined this site on a recommendation of a friend from work as I came off the Tiger Monday - first day back in the saddler after winter - at low speed. Bar ends scratched and shiny luggage scratched but no other damage, apart from my pride!

So, I'm hoping to find out if there's a longer brake pedal for my size 13 right foot or it's a case of me needing to get one lengthened.

I'm no expert, but I think a lengthened pedal is the way to go. Any halfway decent workshop should be able to do it.

Thank you

Thank you, you're probably right.

Just asked on the Tiger forum in case anyone else has done the same.

I will, I'm already getting some great feedback on my lengthening of the brake pedal question in the Tiger forum.
