Prez, first welcome to the forum!. glad you stopped by. There are few bikes that fit perfect from the factory for very tall or very short riders. It's already been stated, but forward controls are a must for taller riders on a sporty or Dyna. The mid- controls on the FXD or sportster would put your legs in a cramped position. The sportster seat height is actually higher than the Dyna FXD. It's one of the highest seat heights across the line of Harleys. Keep in mind that you can change a lot of things to help a bike fit you better. Thanks for coming, post often.
