Wow good for you Dave. Sounds like a meant to be kinda thing. Good luck with what ever you buy. At 6.6, I can certainly see the 750 being cramped. I'm only 5.10 so it isn't bad :-)

Yeah, you are the quiet man alright! Joined only a couple of months after I did.
That school bus yellow makes your bike look almost like our late, great "Professor"`s bike "Old Yella". Other than the new safety green we see on a lot of construction workers vests, etc., Yellow is about the most hi-viz color you can paint your scoot.

I applaud your wisdom and foresight in choosing that color.
