Anybody out there over 6' on an older R6? Just trying to find out if there is even a chance i can sit on one and be comfortable before driving a few hours to look at one to buy.

Should be good for you over 6'. I'm 5'8" and I can't flat foot it - As I'm noticing - 5'11" and above flat foot these.

Though I've also noticed that the smaller riders seem to have a more comfortable ride - I'm perfectly comfortable on mine for long trips - only some sore back and thighs after a full days (10-12 hours) ride, but nothing a good sleep doesn't cure. Compared to 6' and above people that I know who can't do more than 2 hours without a 15-30 minute break and dread more than 4 hours per day.
