First Bike

Currently going to do my CBT and then following up to do the Direct Access. Been looking at Bikes like the BMW GS or KTM adventure, if i do the direct access. But any idea what would be good if i stuck to a 125cc as i'm 6'8" and an inside leg of 36".

Sorry to say,6'8'' is a bit of a disadvantage in the 125 world:upset: i would suppose something like a Suzuki DR 125 SM could be the way to go?you would have to go around as many bike dealers as you can and try some on off road type bikes to see what feels the best for you.Good Luck

Thanks for that. I've sat on a few adventure style bikes, these seem to be the best in terms of size. Although at larger engine sizes, same style at 600cc seems to be too small.
