For The Short Riders

Now... don't take offense when I say short.. as I'm short as well. I stand at 5'4 on the good days. Tremonte posted a good video with some insight and tips for the shorties like me. There's even a Z650 in the video as well Skip to 9:15 to see him get on the Z650, he's 5'3

Luckily, I'm tall enough to balance on both feet if needed. But the Z650's narrower seat does help shorter rider to comfortably and safely sit on the bike in traffic. His method is what I have to do on taller adventure bikes.

I remember going to the motorcycle show and seeing the KTM adventure bikes.. I needed a ladder to get up on one haha! I don't think I'm courageous enough to attempt those at all.

Thanks for the link Stitch. Much appreciated. If anyone has questions about the bike, feel free to drop me a line. I have some how-to's posted as well. Sliders and a fender eliminate.
