I, too, ride a Triumph Speedmaster and highly recommend it also. Great maneuverability and just overall easy to ride. The new Triumph Bobber is great alternative for us shorter riders. Well-worth test riding a Triumph.

It's unfortunate that the market does not supply the need for a long distance touring bike. A 1200cc, 600-pound bike with a 5 or less gallon tank is unwieldy and makes tour planning a gas station to gas station route planning pain.

I'm a believer that the foot forward cruiser style bike is both an ergonomically poor choice for long distance riding and is a major factor in riders dropping their bikes at low speeds and when stopping. It puts your feet in the wrong place for quick balance reaction.

Where are the "beginner" bikes. All these bikes are kinda large?

Hi,
The beginner bikes are listed
here in the Beginner's Guide.

I ride a Harley Nightster because of its narrow frame, that I have lowered to the max. I found bikes with a lower seat height but it's not just the height, its also the width of the bike that makes it hard if you're a short legged rider. I'm 4 feet 11 inches, and have to wear 3-inch heels and still cannot completely flat foot it. To go any lower, l wouldn't be able to get over speed humps, and it would be a very hard ride. My pegs scrape on every corner and l'm picky where l park so l have the leverage to get my bike out. What l'd give to be able to flat foot.
