When talking about all the Lenny Long Legs out there, it’s easy to default to dual-sports as the top motorcycle recommendation. After all, the models in that segments usually rank among the tallest bikes on the market. However, what makes a motorcycle good for tall riders isn’t only its seat height—it’s also about real estate, or how much room you have for your giraffic limbs.
