Dreams down the drain!
My dad had a honda transalp for a couple of years and I always liked the idea of travelling to the unknown on a motorcycle that could handle the tarmac as well as dirt roads and off-road situations.
Now, I’m 30 and I hope, after doing my driver’s license, to buy a used motorcycle. The problem is that I’m 1,66m or, in Imperial, about 5 feet 6 inches. I basically found out that I’m too short for a BMW GS or Honda Africa Twin (my longtime favorites) and that only the Moto Guzzi Stelvio (who isn’t a 100% adventurer bike
), in the lower position, is comfortable for me (The Stelvio is a new bike too expensive for me).One of my initial idea was also to buy a 250cc trail bike(I'm a new rider) but I’m too short. I found out that my optimal seat height is about 800 mm or 31.5 inches. I can ride motorcycles with higher seats but it isn’t really comfortable and practical. So, my question is:
BMW among others, offers a lower seat configuration, is it possible to install it on a used bike or is it a factory option?
Second question: Is it comfortable?
