Default 2011 CBR1000RR for taller people

So I'm 6'1', 225lbs, with a 31 in ch inseam.

Will a CBR really fit me all that well? I hear it has the nicest most relaxed street position of all the liter bikes, is that true?

I'm debating between a CBR and a Kawasaki 1000...

Clearly I need to go into the store and sit on a few, but until then I'd like your thoughts..

I'm 5'-11" and I have an 08 1000RR. The height seems fine for me.

As you said, visit a dealer, sit on one and see how it feels.

I've got an '09 repsol and I'm almost 6'4 235lbs and for a sport bike it fits fine. I bought it from a buddy that's 6'5" and it fit him too.

I bet you'll like it!

I'm 6'3 and I just got done with my first real roadtrip on my 09 repsol (300 miles) and I was as comfortable as I was on my 06 f4i

Just a personal opinion but if you find a bike with the features you want / like, adjustable rearsets can make a bike go from ceamped to comfy... at least as far as legs are concerned.

Just started playing around with the rearsets on my bike and now my 32" inseam are actually gripping the tank instead of the fairings

It's comical seein my friend John on his bikes, he has a few, he's 6'6 270. His Rc-51 looks small under him but then I saw him on his gsxr-600 stunt bike he just got, it was like a tonka toy. Coulda picked it up and put it in his pocket LOL
