    I think it's a matter of build, not just height. I'm 6 foot tall too and put my left leg in first, sit down and then bring the right in (never thought about it really until I read this post).
    But my friend who is also 6 foot tall doesn't seem to be able to get in at all unless with the roof down. He is much more muscular than I am, and guess less flexible... I don't know.
    I'm intrigued now to see how other people do this simple task :)

    I'm six foot two and much prefer getting in with the roof down. If it's up, I stick my bum in first, then one leg at a time, and the hard part, ducking my head down to get it inside. I had an operation on my neck last year and they fused 4 vertabrae together, so I don't really have the necessary flexibility. When the roof is down, sometimes I don't even open the door to get in.
