My fiancee has a 620 Monster, and is enamored with the HM. She just found a '10 796.
She's short. Short enough that she's wondering if the extra 2" of seat height (compared to the Monster) is going to be a problem.
Anybody know any lowering options for the 796? The factory "short guy" seat is 5mm lower than the stock seat, so not really worth dealing with.
One review made a comment about it being difficult to keep the front end down while in 1st gear. Is that an issue? She might weigh 125 in full gear.
I'm happy she's getting a bike that I can ride. On the Monster, I can almost get my knee on the ground - while the bike is on the kickstand.
