Hi there I'm a pretty tall guy and I need some riding gear. I'm 6'8" and 200lbs. My inseam is 38 inches and my waist a 34. Its impossible for me to find any riding gear that will remotely fit me. It's all big and tall. Any tall riders out there with some suggestions? The only thing I can think of is to buy big and get it fitted, but going from a 50 waist to a 34 is a long way. Thanks in advance

Klim has pants in tall - I have 2 pair one in the boot, the other is over the boot/dualsport pant. Realize not typical moto pant, but these are built tough AF. And most importantly I could get them in a tall.

I've been looking for a bigger diameter grip and cant seem to find one.

What's that sponsor that Keefer has on his podcast? Is a Bowers sponsor too... Is it Rutted Racing?

Keefer mentioned that they do or are going to do gear for tall and large lads. Might be a look out.

Otherwise, TLD has some big gear and in general i'd say their sizing is true, whereas Thor/Fox/Shift are small. I'm a 36 pant, 38 in their gear. 36 in TLD.

Moose?

I had wrist surgery and have about 60% grip strength and found the Tag Rebound grip to work well. It's a little fatter and won't let your hand go. It is a discontinued model but I think you can still find it if you search.


^^ not me but may help you decide, also they make these in a LoProfile. I've never used them so I can't say good or bad. Hope you read this and it helps.

yah sit down. . shut up.. and pin it!!! lol... j/k... I really dont know an answer to that one.. I've spent so much time on the other end of the spectrum I've not seen much on shorter riders... My wife is 4'11" and I put a set of flat bars on her 125... adjusted brake and shifter and she has no issue but that bike is small too compared to todays 250 and 450s

Any taller riders have info on ways to drop the foot pegs by an inch or two? I’m 6 5” with boots on and would like to grab the bike more with my legs. Thanks for any knowledge.

Fastway pegs but I cannot remember how far of a drop it is.. I think 1/2 inch down and 1/2 inch back...I'm 6'8" and use them on all my bikes.. Followed by longer shifter and brake lever.

I’m 6’5 200lbs with a 36” inseam. I run fly, Fox, TLD, O’Neal without issues. 34 waist and xl Jersey. I don’t care too much on the lengthnof the pants since my boots cover them anyway.
