first question "does she know how to ride" is relevant because if she really does, it doesn't matter if she tip toes cause she can still control the bike. If she's new, she'll probably rely heavily on being able to walk the bike around. An experienced rider picks up their feet as soon as the bike starts moving and doesn't put them back down unless completely stopped. If you're short, when you stop you lean the bike to one side and hold it up with one foot until you're ready to go again.

second question "msf"
we should know if she's had any training. Her boyfriend, the OP, has already trashed his bike and if he's the only one teaching her then that might be a problem. At MH, we trash talk a lot but the truth is, is that we care about the safety of fellow riders.

third question "why a 600"
Usually when people don't know much about bikes, they'll say things like it has to be over 600cc. When in fact, a 600cc inline-4 is quite different from a 650cc v-twin..which are both insanely different from a 600+ cc cruiser. The OP has a GSX-R so we assume he might be talking a supersport. In that case, we should know why he thinks his girlfriend is ready for what is basically a street legal racebike.
STILL has nothing to do with HIS question.... He asked how much would it roughly cost to lower a bike to some one at 5'1 to be flat footed.

Just because he trashed his bike does not mean she will. ( blah blah its not IF its when )

But whatever be a Racer X douche bag, was a simple question. But no, MH cant seem to comprehended when some one asks a question.

It doesn't matter if she takes MSF. There are people on MH that haven't taken the MSF course and they have big "liter" bikes. If she takes it or not. It's up to her. I got my bike before I took the MSF course. Oh yeah i got the 600cc bike. I know ppl that started off with a 250 and quickly realized that they couldn't keep up with the others and got a bigger bike. PPl crash all the time on the Forest Ride do you tell them " oh your crashed you shouldn't have that bike it's to "fast" for you" If he has a sport bike y in the would she get a cruiser. don't make sense. idoits. picking up the feet when the bike starts moving I lol at this. you pick up ur feet when u feel like it. No matter what MH bashes ppl. Either way he is going to do what he wants. Bunch of hypocrites on here.

I didnt pay attention to how many inches my first bike was lowered

If he couldnt lower it any further that's where it stopped.

hahaha....just to give u an idea.



Okay - as the first GIRL to comment who is SHORTER than your wife and started out a brand new rider four+ years ago, I'll be honest with you:

I started out on a Nighthawk 250 cruiser. It's very small, easy to handle, and I could put both of my feet on the ground (although not flat unless I had some heel on my boots). I STILL dropped the bike sometimes when I put my foot in a hole or my foot slid on oil or something. I'm so glad I started small.

After one year on the little bike I got an SV650. I my bike, but I had to lower it 3" in the rear (with GSX-R links) and lower the front about an inch. I also had to shave 2" out of the seat. I CANNOT flat foot this bike. I am on the of my feet when I stop. I do not take passengers because of this.

I've sat on stock height Ninja 250's and they are short enough for my feet to reach the ground, but just barely, so I believe they could be lowered enough to be comfortable for a new rider. Also, my sister has a Yamaha FZ600 (please correct me if I got that wrong), but it's the lower-end 600, and it's very low, also. She had it lowered when she bought it new.

Please do not hesitate to PM me with any questions. I will be more than happy to come out and let your girlfriend sit on my bike and see if she can pick it up - then you'll know.

BTW- I have a 29" inseam.
