Height and comfort

Decided a J300 is the way to go out of current options. However, sat on one today and was a tad disappointed at how limited the seating options are. As in you cannot really move feet around much or slide forward or back on seat. My concern is how comfortable this will be to ride long term. I am 5'11 would be good to hear how tall riders are and how they find it on long rides.

I'm 5' 6", 28" inside leg, and I find it almost cramped, so I'd think you'd feel very restricted.

Its a pity Kawasaki does not offer a tall seat option, as its such a capable scoot suitable for more than just short city journeys. I'm 6' and found it pretty cramped so had my seat worked on by Tony Archer of Huddersfield. The man has worked wonders - raising the height by 1.5" and reshaping to give more room. I now find I'm comfortable, fairly upright and not slumped in the seat as before, still loads of room for my pillion.
If you do want to go the same route be aware Mr Archer is very busy, (not surprising given his skill and very reasonable pricing), I had to wait 6 weeks to get mine done, but well worth it.
