As one of the long limbed kind I too suffer the same as Jaim - I'm 6'3" and have a 34" inseam - sometimes I can feel the top mounting bolt of the SW Motech bars with my right knee. Nothing annoying but I know it's there.

As for lowers I have the new OEM 'shorties' or 'sawn offs' - whatever you want to call them.

Whatever you do - do something - 250kg of metal hitting the tarmac needs some protection!

I have the OEM lower crash bars and I installed the SW Motech uppers and they work very well.  I tested them during a level 1 BMW Motorrad off-roading course.  A must have item in my opinion.
