There are exceptions, but in most cases the taller you are, the higher your seat height. Didn't want to have to ask for inseams!khrome13 said:well 6'3" with a 36" inseam is different from 32" inseam... it has as much to do with where your height is distributed..Â :bigthumbsup:Â there could be some guys taller or shorter and still ahve the same trunk lengthÂ just thought i would throw that in for freeÂ :joke:
I am looking forward to the replies ... as i am still indecided on a shield for winter...
Thanks for the feedback. I never would have guessed that angling it forward would result in worse buffeting. I've got a lot to learn about shields.red1951man said:Jloss,Â Red1951man (6'1")Â I've been playing with my hellcat all day trying differant heights and angles.Â I must say I really have reached no perfect setting.Â At first the shield was forward as far as it would go and buffeting was terrible.Â Even at low speeds.Â Now I have it tilted back pretty far.Â It is almost the same angle as the headlight housing.Â Buffeting has stopped but I need a face shield at this angle.Â Click the link below to see a side view.Â
LionsGate said:A taller torso usually benefits from some sort of wind management designed into the windshield. There are at least three types, the curved lip, bubble & lip, and the airfoil. The airfoil comes in various sizes and can often be trimmed then added to an existing shield. If you go with the lip design I'd suggest buying a thicker laminate.
Here is an example of a good design, it uses the lip, it's a thick laminate and offers some of the best mounting hardware.
The first and last link are large images.
Thanks for the feedback!
Here's an example of the airfoil. They come in 130 different sizes.
I wish there was better news, buffeting is a real headache. The lip design does create a larger dead space around the helmet. I'm afraid you're faced with style vs function on this one. The bubble & lip design works best but that style, while used on sport cycles like the M, is just too fugly to consider in my opinion thus I offered no links.
At any rate, look over the one on the Rune and see if it's something you might like.
