hello all, this is my first post here.
anywho,....As the story goes, I currently own a Yamaha Zuma - not a sportbike -I know..though I've been browsing the internet high and low for something to satisfy my need for speed. currently I am eyeing the Katana. I'm only 5'2". That being the case, I need suggestions on something FAST, reliable and well-suited for the "vertically-challenged" individual.
any help would be apprecated. I'd espically like to hear from short riders.

PS- incase you're wondering, my user name is the speed of light translated into miles per hour. kudos to those who knew that already

Welcome to the board. First of all, your height doesn't have much to do with it. You need to find out what your inseam is. The I suggest going to manufacturer websites and check out the specs. There they will show seat height. If the seat height is close, then go check them out at respective dealerships. Also remember, you can always lower the bike if you just need an inch or 2.

Hope this helps.
