I'm only 6' 3" and swapped my 4th blackbird for the Tex.... Loving it!  Obviously it's slower than the bird but the torque comes in at lower revs so two up is a much better,more comfortable ride.
And legs are much straighter,  if you get the xc you can put your legs up on the engine bars and whack the cruise control on... Sorted!

Hi and welcome,
Cant comment on the comfort for someone of 6'4" - like what with me only being 5'10"
But as a bike I'd recommend it, enjoyed mine to date

Welcome. I'm sure you will find the tex a damn site more comfortable than the bird. I done a 400 mole stunt up to Scotland last year on my vfr and was on agony with my neck. I have since done the same mileage on the tex without the slightest bit of bother. On fact it just makes you want to keep going on and on and not want to get off it that enjoyable.
