Can a Petite Woman Rider Handle a Big Touring Motorcycle?

Do you have advice about best big bikes for short women?


Petite Woman Ride Big Touring Motorcycle
My husband just got his touring motorcycle and to be honest, I would love to have one of my own but I don't know what kind of bagger is a good fit for me. I'm a short woman rider—only 5 feet 2 inches and 110 pounds. I don't want to be crushed by a big bike but I like how they feel as I ride as a passenger on my husband's BMW K1600 Grand America. Any advice would help.
