    Default 1400 GTR Question

    Hi All,

    I currently ride a GL1800 Goldwing. I used to own a Honda St1300. I miss the sports touring bike and I am now looking at buying a 1400 GTR. The only thing that concerns me is the seat height. I am only 5'8". I managed ok with the ST1300 but that seat is lower than the Kawasaki GTR 1400.

    Have any short legged people had any experience on this bike that they would like to share.

    Thanks guys.

    I'm 5"7" and had a blast on the GTR. Best bike I have ever ridden and my dream bike.

    Thanks guys, I know there is a gell seat available which is about 25mm lower. I am not sure if there is a trade off on comfort.

    A guy that comes for a ride with us every now and then is 5'8" and he copes quite comfortably on the GTR.
