haha- silly man. I'm a woman. I'll change my mind at least 1000 times before I actually buy a bike. And truth be told, I'm super cheap and will probably NOT spend the money on something new. Why do you think I'm still riding the 250?

I likes lots of other bikes, but they are all very tall and heavy, and everybody says it doesn't handle as well when lowered. I won't have an option- MUST be lowered.

I'm thinking of getting metal legs- yeah, it's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it...

Have you seen my mid-drift? If I showed up like that he would pay me to just go away.

The wife loves her Hyosung 650 and we were able to lower it enough to fit her short legs. It is similar to the SV650 but has a sportier fairing on it..

It does "at least" 130 with my fat on it....

CAN'T SAY THAT I HAVE....however, if I were single I wouldn't mind sneaking a peek. back on topic...get a SV....plenty of parts available, not "that" heavy, and plenty of "get up and go" for a small gal like yourself.

Weight is fine- but my inseam is about 29". I'd still have to lower it nearly two inches to 30".

And everybody makes fun of me for riding in heels... its the only way I can stand 'flat' footed on the bike.

She is 5' 4" with short legs. The forks are down 1" and the rear about 1.5" and I shaved some padding off the front of the seat as well. She is still on the tips of her toes but comfortable.

yeah, right!

But seriously, I am sure she won't mind you checking it out.. next time I am home we'll take a ride out north or something..

Have you sat on a Ninja 250? That was about the same seat height but narrower than hers sits now....
