Smallest Person on a DR650

Recommended Posts

So this should be a good laugh..

but how tall / how much do you weigh?

I'm 5'8" 140lbs, anyone smaller / weigh less?

I assume any wives should beat me.

also i ride at stock height which puts me on my tip toes.

I am 5'9" 175lbs +/-

I always have a tough time deciding what level to keep the bike at. I enjoy long distance riding so I usually keep it low for the long rides. I've got the bike very low with a lowering link and factory lowering front and rear with the forks slid up in the clamps. Seems to cut a smaller hole for higher speed riding. When ripping through twisties or of roading or hooligan behavior, raise it up!

If only they made a simple ride height adjustment for quick on the fly adjustment....I'd be in heaven!

There have been some very short riders on the 650 on the forum. I remember seeing some 5' riders and was amazed they could handle the bike. I used to try and go for the tallest bikes available though so I understand being a short rider and acquiring the skill to handle the tall bikes. The tallest bikes I've ridden and enjoyed were the KTM 625 Adventure and the KTM 950 Adventure. The height never bothered me on either even though it was a one cheek off the seat and one foot down affair at stops.
