Body Height
« on: November 21, 2019, 17:34:32 »
Just been reading through a few screen threads and wish everyone would post their leg measurement as well as overall height, after all it's the torso length that matters at the end of the day....imho.

Totally agree. I’ve been trying to research the screens but they will be specific to that persons height. I’m 5’10” but only have a 29” leg. So long torso ish. Have now resorted to just buying a screen and going from there.

I'm 5'11", 31" leg, givi airflow was the only screen that works for me, had the little extra fin fitted when the bike was new, it made no difference so after a few rides got the givi, all good since then.

+1 for the Givi Airflow, had them on a few bikes.

Re torso height, many many pro testers only mention their overall height......

Most "Pro" testers" are complete tossers. eg that 'Jodrell banker' who always starts his blog with "High Kids".   Can't write the 'H I'
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
