I wish I could say I had the opposite problem pmsl I've been learning on a Honda CBF500 and that is fine - the cat seat height is a little higher , I've yet to sit on one yet.

Yes, definately. In Germany we call the cat the "eierlegende Wollmilchsau" Wink

For the translation i had to look to a dictionary: "all-in-one device suitable for every purpose" Rolling Eyes green smile

Yes I was just thinking of that translation :lol3: It's going to be used mainly for traveling to work and back , a total journey of 68 miles - mainly motorway , dualcarriage ways , and a tiny bit in London. And sometimes for fun at the weekends .

Welcome in bud great

As one myself who is vertically challenged I'd personally not worry about the height issue at all, Sometimes it can be a disadvantage & at other times an advantage too (on & off the bike lachen ) , I always tend to get off the bike when manoeuvring backwards anyway as its easier than 'paddling' it.
I have a friend who rides a gixxer 750 & is 5'3" & she simply slides her arse to one side when stationary & places one foot on the floor & on track days she always laps all the blokes in her group link
Its all about confidence & you will soon gain that mate in buckets full, Remember the old saying 'The bigger they are the harder they fall' naughty

'The bigger they are the harder they fall'


I think it hurts when you fall however big or small you are, apart from those that are incredibly fat i suppose, then maybe you will bounce!! pokefun


Falling keeps me in a job....So keep it up folks!!! pmsl

yeah they're a big multi-marque dealer - Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Honda. Also have a massive discount centre and a fantastic burger van on Saturdays great

I'm pushing 5'11" so don't really know about the height thing, all I can say is that it's comfy for me! They can be a bit rare to find in dealers to have a sit on, but if you ever bump into me you're more than welcome to see how it fits Smile

Well i think the height thing should be answered by the 2 garden gnomes of the group

step forward Suzie and Chris(greencat)

they should be able to solve all height issues concerning the cat


i will now duck back behind the parapet and await the incoming pmsl :lol3: lol! hehe lol2
