i know this is the ladies lounge, so forgive me... but that's a lot of bike for someone who is 5'3" and just starting out. it's a great bike, but there's a lot of it. any chance he could get you something a bit smaller?oldcrow wrote:hello i'm new here but here goes. my husband bought me a gl 1000 77, which he is restoring but i need a different seat. the bike feels to tall for me since i'm a new rider. just beginning. i make his bike look better. anyway i'm only 5'3" and i stand on tip toes. does anyone have any answers for better lower seat i've looked all over on this computer. are there any seats that will fit my bike. it does not have to be for honda as long as it fits and is smaller. thanks ladies and nice talking to ya

You might want to try a Harley "Brawler" solo seat.Sporty313 wrote: ↑Mon Jun 29, 2015 9:04 pmHi ladies... New here. Love the site. Been riding 12 years 4'11" started on. Buell 650, moved to an 07 HD SPORTSTER 883 XL low, just traded for a sporster 1200 touring super low...and while the new bike is sold as a super low it is about 1.5 inches taller than my old sporty and wider...just enough that I cannot flatfoot and getting it off my driveway and backing it up into the street is a problem. Any recommendations on custom seats ..had a corbin slim on the last sporty but they are hard a concrete....would prefer a softer ride this time around ... Also any advise on boots. Thanks Sporty313
