More Bikes From Motorcycle Live 2010

December 8, 2010

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!!! 😀
