I am 5 feet 2 inches and am used to a small bike. I have just purchased a Moto Guzzi V7 Classic and have been a bit anxious about taking it out on the road but reading about others in similar situations has boosted my confidence. Thanks!

Nice article. I am 5 feet tall and I’ve ridden lots of different motorcycles. Being vertically challenged has never stopped me. I hope this will help others trying to make their decision. It’s worth pursuing. Thanks for sharing.

At 5 feet 2 inches, tall I can attest to all the good advice in this article. An additional option is to get a custom seat. I ride a factory lowered BMW F 650 GS, which has a stock seat height of 30.3 inches. I have an inseam of 28 inches, but only 26 inches when straddling a seat. I got a custom seat from Corbin that lowered the seat an additional 1.5 inches and also had them narrow the seat so that my "female" thighs fit into the sides of the seat more comfortably. I also wear Daytona Lady Star boots which have a 2.5cm insole rise. Put that all together and riding can be for anyone, no matter their stature.
