Since visiting the bike show on Sunday I really want one of these...



A Suzuki Gladius (650cc). I can get my feet down on it well, I love the looks and it even comes in a pink colour scheme! Very Happy

Only problem is that the husband threatened to divorce me when I mentioned that I kinda wanted another bike sometime.

I also fitted the Triumph Speed Triple well, so I'd like to work up to that one! Wink

The new Bennelli gets a great review in this month's bike mag! Wink

I stopped wanting to want some time ago. Guess I've been there and now that I've got a RSVR Factory, that's err.....all I want Very Happy

Well, there is the MV Agusta F4S which might be an alternative, but I'd want to try it out first before giving up the Factory.....

Chadz, what was the bike you posted a pic of? Not very good at recognising ones like that yet.

Lissee, I'm very glad for every millimetre of height I have. I didn't care before I got into motorbikes, but now its important! Pity most bikes are made for guys, rather than our petite frames.

Blue, I love the look of the Augusta. It looks fantastic! Wouldn't actually want to own it though, apart from just to stare at it! lol

My SP is so perfect for me at the mo, height , weight , looks and speed, I think if I could relax more with it and trust its not gonna give me problems frequently I would be able to settle myself better. saying that the last few months with it have been fantastic, every ride I have come back grining from ear to ear. My 2 year restriction is up next month Whoooo Hooo , but I wont be rushing out to upgrade yet.

My sisters boyfriend brought round his new Hybusa yesterday, I have never seen a bike that big and wide. I think its really really amazing looking but I could never handle a bike like that I dont think.

That's true actually...I forget most bikes are designed with a height in mind. There were some bikes where the height was adjustable like a car (possibly BMW?) but the bike weighed as much as a behemoth.

I guess you have to scout more to find bikes that are a good size for a smaller body frame. Lowering suspension helps, as does raising foot pegs, and getting customised narrower seats. But it's still true - it's a lot more work for girls. Something I just take for granted and realise I should be more grateful for Very Happy

Got to love looking at the MV Agusta. You're right about servicing/parts being a nightmare. That's the main reason why I wouldn't go exquisite like this in the city, also with no garage, I can imagine it being stolen within a week.

It takes a lot of the fun out of looking for my next bike, u see something u like the look of and can afford , then you sit on it and ur feet are dangling in the air like a plonker.

If i was even one or two inches higher I would have tons more choice, As I get more confident tho I will probably be happy enough getting part of one foot on the ground , Maybe lol

Yeah I can imagine that. That was the reason why I was gutted with a Ducati 999R - I sat in it (yes! 'in' it - not 'on' it) and it made me feel like a caged monkey on a chimp bike. It's probably the perfect bike if you're 5ft 8" but once you start hitting 6ft, it becomes a very acquired taste. That's one reason why I like the Ape rather than the chimp bikes Smile The Ape is very accommodating and spacious.

Well that was the opposite dilemma to which you had! They do make really cool sexy womens' boots with thick inch heels in the States. They seem to be the rage over there. Not so much here; maybe because fewer women motorcycle in the UK than the States? I'm not sure.....

Always watch out for the curve of the road camber where you are. That caught me out once when I put my foot down and there was a 4 inch difference between the nearside and the offside!!! The surprise of this discovery almost made me topple over. Boy is a bike heavy when you're leaning at 35 degrees on the still....

Yeah I hear about a lot of big fellas (ohh errr missuses) having the opposite problem, too tall to be comfy on certain bikes.

i do look for the camber cause im still on my toes with my bike (and thats with it already having been lowered)

If my bike gets as far as 35 degrees it would def be on th ground. been watching good videos on u tube of the easiest way to pick a bike up lol. It should come in useful if it happens again.
