Let me start off by saying that i absolutly love my cbr and for as long as i can remember the cbr was always the bike i wanted. but i am 5'6 and it pisses me off that i cant reach the ground on my bike except with my tippy toes. now i have gotten used to it and have no problems riding what so ever. but i would still like to be able to reach because it is embarrasing when you are trying to back up your bike on uneven ground and you cant because you cant reach well enough. well my friends today i sat on a new gsxr 600 and i was maybe a centimeter away from being flat footed with sneakers on!!! i am in love. not only that the bike was incredibally light and comfortable. i really am not a fan of the colors of the suzuki but the i looked at was the same color as my cbr black/silver. its going to kill me to sell my cbr but that bike felt great. just trying to give some of you shorter riders some options.
