Motorcycles for Short Riders

Never had both feet flat! Usually one.

Yep, I’m short. I’m a whopping 5’2″ (formerly 5’3″ but apparently I’m shrinking in my old age) with a 28.5″ inseam. However, I am blessed to have a slightly higher inseam than my counterparts, I know. But I’ve still had to struggle with height issues but learned very early on that it’s not about how tall you are, but HOW you ride.

I just want you to know that you shouldn’t be limited to a motorcycle that matches your inseam. I’ve never flat footed both feet on a motorcycle except on a Honda Rebel 250 and a 50cc dirtbike. But I didn’t let that stop me from riding what I wanted to ride and you can too! Keep riding, learning and growing from your motorcycle(s).

Going Back to Cali for a Week!



I’m so excited to go home for a week! I’m leaving this Friday and will be back in Philly in 2 Mondays. I’ll be driving around in a rental car since it’s going to be raining the entire time I’m there. So no riding for me…. *sigh*

But you may find me at the Dainese Store San Francisco on Wednesday, January 20th at 6:30pm for a viewing of Hitting the Apex! A $10 donation will directly benefit the Marco Simoncelli Foundation.

Can’t wait to be back in my old town…. Just wish it could be on two wheels! :-(

Rydesafe Reflective Decals in multiple colors/patterns

Woo hoo! Reflective stuff! Ok, maybe I’m the only nerd that gets excited about bright objects. But I like wearing black when it comes to my motorcycle gear. I look good in it too, what can I say? :P But I know that I need to somehow make up for all the darkness with some bright reflectives to stay visible and safe as possible. So here’s a few accessories I like that can help you too. Continue reading…
