hi everybody,
first of all sorry fom my english....
I like very much the Paso and I would like to buy one, but I'm in trouble because I'm very tall (1,96cm)
Could be a Paso the right bike for me?
Is there a tall guy tha owned one and can help me?
Thanks
Roberto

Hi Roberto , welcome to the show .
The only way to be sure is to find one ( Paso ) and park yourself on it . Im picking you will find it a bit cramped , but I guess it depends on how far you want to ride it in one go. Peeps here have moved foot pegs round a bit to suit various injuries / maladies so there may be help there . Just get your legs shortened ..... Ive had one done :D

Hi Roberto,

I'm 194cm and i quite like the comfort of the Paso, i've ridden it for 1,000km in a single day. Proportionally I have long legs and a short body and i find that the standard foot pegs have your legs very folded like a sports bike but your upper body is quite relaxed. I suspect the main issue will be bend at the knees but you can get different foot pegs which make this easier...

I don't think they will let you get on a bike at the Ducati museum ;)
