Hi guys, new member Hoping to get my L plates soon (booking test after my exams). I'm definitely keen to get into the sport, but the only thing stopping me is my height, I'm 161cm . Tried my mate's CBR, and I can barely sit well on it, very awkward, bouncing between feet etc. I'm okay with investing in a new Honda CBR250R and have talked to Honda dealers about lowering it. Wondering if lowering the bike would ruin the ride? What sort of complications/ trouble I might run into being so short, even with a lowered bike? Do prelearner course even provide low-riding manual bikes? Is learning manual hard? I drive an auto car. But I play with the tiptronic LOLOL Thanks guys, sorry for the long post.
