Iâ€™m around 5â€™5â€ and weigh in at about 60kgs. The issue of riding a bike with a seat height that is too high for me still occurs but not really to a degree that I could justify spending a fortune just to make the bike a bit lower. :? Seeing as Iâ€™m not legally aloud to take a pillion yet because of restrictions (not long now), my experience has been limited to doubling my dad up a back farm road on a XVS250. The majority of the time taking a pillion would be someone with a similar height and weight as me (boss lady :wink: ). Does on a taller bike the pillion weight drop the seat height making it more comfortable to ride or does the increase in weight make it worse because it makes the bike top heavy? Has anyone else who is reasonably short come across a major issue with taking pillions or is it a donâ€™t worry about it, make em get their own bike thing?
