As ya know one of the GREAT things about Motorcycle Live is being able to sit on bikes and try them out for size so I did!!!!!!
Here I am on the Ninja 😀
As you can see I was able to totally flat foot on both sides when sitting on it. I found it felt quite slim as well! All well and good when you’re only 5′ 3″ tall!!!
Next up is me on the CBR600. Sat on this one I was only able to get the balls of both feet on the floor which quite surprised me considering how I felt on the Fireblade!
Here I am on the Fireblade 😀 I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I could get both feet flat on the floor on the Blade. I wasn’t expecting it to be as small as it is, gawd knows how big blokes manage to ride it comfortable. I felt like it fitted me like a glove!
After the Urban Tiger colour scheme I personally think the HRC colours are the next best. I just loved that bike and after riding my ’95 Fireblade it felt so tiny. I may just have to look out for one ina few years time 😀
The photo which makes me giggle the most is the next one! I’m only little ( 5′ 3″!!!) and have said for almost 2 years that I’d love a crosser of some sort but being as little as I am I reckon I’ll have a few issues! Yer I know that riding crossers off road is different than riding on the street but you still have to stop sometime without falling over, and therein lies my problem. The crossers I saw at the show seemed to have seat heights that were mostly about the level of my waist 😦
Until we found this one 😀
Finally one I can fit on!!! 😀
