Why don't manufacturers build 600's with a shorter person in mind? I noticed that many sportbike riders on a 600 have trouble getting flat footed with both feet. While I have that problem while at a stand still, I can flat foot my parking leg. But I do wish that i can plant both feet while parking my bike, etc.
Most guys that are close to 6' + would be looking for 750 - litre bikes anyway. So why can't they make 600's fit the mid 5' people?
Shaving seats, lowering links, thicker soled boots are nothing but compromises.
