Woohoo!!

I feel somewhat unique as only 1 of 5 in MY height range!!

How about it all you other stubby riders at 5'4" any "exciting" moments while riding off-road on it?
I still love this bike despite only getting a toe down!

No lowering links for me I just hop on and GO - who needs to touch the ground anyway -- I just don't stop

Oh, and Janice - no fair posting numbers without photographic proof to back it up:mrgreen:

5'4" isn't 20% but 1.1% at this point. I'd like to see pics of you slow dancing with 6'5" Janice. I've seen her pics and believe the numbers.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

A lot more people are willing to disclose their weights than their heights for some reason. 704 to 497 at this point.

I'm a tall Hispanic at 6'2". Problem is I'm also quite pale and have light hair... quite common in the US but in my own country I stand out like a fly on a wedding cake... sucks.

5'8" female with a 33" inseam, would still like the bike to be a tad lower though, just for my (probably noobish) peace of mind.

Your legs are longer than mine even though I have a couple of inches height advantage. Once you get used to the bike, you'll probably want to go back to a stock rear height. Having the front end lowered 10-15mm with respect to a stock rear seems to be the best handling setup.
