Greetings form NH

Hello everyone. I am in the NH seacoast and really excited about finding this forum. There may be a better place to post this but I have a question. I just sold my Super Sherpa and am excited about getting a KLR 650. ...But I am only 5'6" with a 29" inseam, Is this bike going to be too big for me even with all the lowering options? Thanks for any input !

it will be a little tall but with the lowering options out there you should still be alright. you shouldnt be dissapointed. it will be a nice upgrade from the sherpa

Welcome to the forum and agreed with Scrapper......he's a lucky guesser but right !!!

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

Welcome to the forum Jonking66! I'm 5' 7" with a 29" inseam and have a Sargeant low seat on my 2004 KLR650 and stock suspension. I can flat foot one side or tiptoe both with this setup. Perfectly fine for the street and off-road with a little care.
