Ya, I think you qualify for his disclaimer for people over 6' needing bar risers.   ;D  I have a set of risers for my Tenere but haven't installed them.  I am borderline needing risers on Tenere at 6'1".  If I had a stronger core and legs I would be more comfortable in the stand up position with out them.
