I’m a veteran pillion passenger who’s finally making the jump on the front seat.
I have big expectations…and a small frame. I’m 5.5” and quite short limbed, about 30” of inseam.
I have short listed a few bikes I’m interested into:
Honda rebel 500
Yamaha v-star 450 (do these even exist?)
Kawasaki Vulcan 650
Aside from the displacement (not sure I want to try and handle a 650 just yet), I am just not sure these are right for me. After chatting with the bikers in my life I’ve gathered the best thing to do would be have a sit on each of these and feel for myself.
Do you agree?
What else would you guys suggest?
If you agree, can you recommend any shops where I can go and try these?
Thanks a bunch!
