Hi I'm new here , I joined to find out what I could about these bikes . I have owned a few Harley's and a few dirt bikes but no sport bikes . One question I do have that someone here could answer for for is 165 cm or 5foot 5 to short for one of these bikes or not I've got my eye on a 2012 anniversary model is my height going to be a problem you think
Hi what do folks here say about someone who is 165cm or 5foot 5" being able to ride a 2012 cbr1000rr anniversary model with stock suspension. Is it to short or not ?????. I do have a pare of decent work boots I use when I ride my Harley to work , maybe for around town they could make the difference up that is if 5/5 is to short without having to play with suspension which I was hoping I wouldn't have to do as I've heard it's not to good to do on sport bikes . Be good to know what's other think
Thanks for the reply not to many sp models around where I am . I have got my eye on a 2012 annaversery model with only 11000km on it . I just haven't had the chance to sit on it yet as it's currently 300 km from where I live and there are none around town that I know of that I could climb on and have a feel for it . I do have a decent set of work boots that add a fare bit of height that I use on my Harley when I ride to work . If 5/5 is to short they might get me out of trouble without playing with suspension cause lowing is something I don't want to do if I can help it .
Short and stalky gang checking in. I'm 5'5 170 lbs with a 30'' inseam. My CBR is setup around an inch taller than the 2012 and it's still fine. I can tip toe both feet or get the ball of one foot down which is more than enough, no need to lower.
