Seat Height
« on: February 19, 2013, 02:39:17 PM »
I recently acquired a 2011 B5 (new to me). Having ridden its older brother 350 growing up, the B5 was a natural move for me.

Since I brought it home, my girlfriend has been learning to ride and being short (27" inseam) is on her tippy toes while stopped. This scares me a little.

I noticed some of you have a solo seat on the bike. I don't know what model the one attached below is but I think the color and styling complement B5 well. How much shorter is the seat height with the solo compared to the stock? I am wondering if switching the seats will help her put her feet firmly on the ground.
 
TIA
