Now we need one that does the "actual seat height" based on how wide the seat is, and the angle of the sides etc etc etc.

Hehehe, sorry I had to.

Or how comfortable a certain size rider would fit on each (depending on leg size, example; I have a bigger upper chest and rather shorter legs)

It's hard to believe that I lasted as long as I did when I rode our Yamaha FZ6 (I only have a 28" inseam). Thank goodness for my Meanstreak!!

The last bike I sold we just put a lowering kit on it (Kawasaki 800) for the lady around 5’6 and she loved it. I just changed my stock seat out for a single Mustang seat and it brought me up less then inch but not enough that it changed my footing or control. I tell people that it is best to have your feet flat when you stop not on your tip toes, yep I have seen them at stop lights leaning to one side.

seats

#14 Unread post by slimcolo » Sat Jun 09, 2007 5:05 am

For me height isnt a prob, but why are so many seats so wide. Looked at new LT (an excellent bike but Jesus like sitting on Shamu the whale) seat is 6 inches lower than my gs but so wide I couldn't gety my feet on ground with out doing splits and sticking knees out. My lazy boy isnt this wide. You can ride 2 up side by side.I mean who are these built for John Gibson and Rosie O Donel. These Lt seats like Gold Wing etc are about 6 inches wider than the Corbin I took off because it was too wide. and this made me realize something------ ppl are telling me that I am a big arse not that I have a big arse. I LIKE TO SIT ON MY SEAT NOT IN MY SEAT

Tip for V-strom buyers

#15 Unread post by rwp » Thu Jun 28, 2007 11:33 am

I found out from the dealer here in Reno that the seats for 650 and 1000cc versions of the V-stroms are interchangeable. This means that if you have a V-strom 1000 or are in the market for one and want a slightly lower seat, the dealer can pull one from a 650 and you've just lost about 3/4 inch. Similarly if you're buying a 650 and want a higher seat, the 1000cc version will fit.

The seats are shaped just a little but differently so the edges will not quite line up perfectly with the bike's bodywork but they're close enough that it's hard to notice unless you look very closely.

Well I don't think I'll have any trouble fitting on a bike. I'm 6' and have an inseam of 34". Just not sure what my arm reach is though.
I've seen a really short girl on a bike, and it was kinda scary. When she stopped, she was basically on her tip toes, and I swear she couldn't put both feet (well toes for that matter) down at the same time.

Just as an added comment on the new '08 lineup from Victory:

'08 Victory Vision Premium Tour: 26.5"

'08 Victory Vegas Low: 25.2"

These are both new for 2008. Go take a demo ride!
