So I'm a new rider and looking to buy a sportsbike, I'm 6ft3 with a 34" inseam and I'm leaning toward an R7 however I live in the middle of nowhere so can't go to a dealership to sit on one. I don't care if it looks a little bit goofy but would I even physically fit on an r7 or would I be ruining my legs trying to ride one?

You'll be fine. I'm 6'4" and riding. Can comfortably flatfoot the bike and stand up while sitting on the bike.
Just spend 2 minutes adjusting your levers downward and adjusting the clutch pedal's distance if you need to.

It’s often a huge plus to be a bit large on a sportbike, def. an increased level of risk taking goes with, haha, (6’1” here).
