Default Can a short girl like me ride motorcycles?

I'm 20, 5 feet 1 and a half (29" inseam), and about 90 lbs. T_T is it possible? Do I have to be taller or gain more?

Sure. You won't be able to fit on too many bikes, but there are a few that are light and small enough for you. Where do you live?

I live in Los Angeles, California. I've never watched any Gladiator movies. I'm looking to ride a sportsbike like, not the mopeds or scooter kinds. =]

There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

I know a woman who is about 5' even who is able to ride a Ninja500. They can be lowered and foam taken out of the seat.

Why do all these women think they are short? the average women is either 5'3 or 5'4! its like saying im sooooo tall at like 6'1, 6'2. Of course you can, theres lots of small light bikes out there, go look at a Ninja 250.

I happen to have a set of dogbones that will lower a Ninja 500 about 1-1/2" or so. Leftover from The Wife's previous mount.

It's just I've been told that I'm too small for it is all.
