My wife Kath is just 5 feet tall. She owns a Suzuki GZ125cc Marauder (a cruiser for learners - see below) which she's not that keen on.
She feels she has been forced to buy a cruiser rather than a 'proper' (her word not mine) motorbike.
What we're looking for is a normal motorbike that will allow someone 5 feet tall to put both on the ground when stationary.
Something that looks like this but smaller (Honda CB125)
We have scoured the UK for such a bike without success. Kath is so disappointed that she has written to the senior Managing Director of Honda in Japan as he has claimed to want to 'make the bike to fit you' as part of Honda's marketing campaign.
We are not at all interested in lowering kits, sculpted seats, platform boots or any other ad hoc adjustment.
There must be a bike out there made for short people - after all there are some nations whose average citizen height is much less than the UK. How do they cope? I am happy to import a bike to the UK.
Do you know of such a bike?
Hope you can help.
