Shorter Stature Ladies

You do not need your feet flat on the floor on a motorbike - only very tall people can do this. The ball of your foot is more than sufficient. Options in this order:

  • shave seat or find a bike with a low seat height. Also be aware that while a bike can have a low seat height, if the seat is wide (e.g. 06+ R6), you will get less of your foot on the ground compared with a bike with a similar seat height but a narrower seat
  • extra height on shoes
  • lowering links (but stress this affects geometry and the bike will no longer want to turn in as easily). To counteract this you need to have your front suspension done (lowered) as well.
