She is taller than me by an inch or two: I'm 5'7" and she 5'8"-n-change, equals the full toes of both her feet at a standing stop. She learned to ride with me though, so she isn't allowed to go for both feet at the same time, only the left foot down, to keep the rear brake covered, unless conditions call for the brake side foot, instead. (of course that swaps when she rides her right side shift/left side brake Triumph)

She barely tip toed on the 690SM we looked at on Saturday and it was soooo balanced that she felt like there wasn't any weight to keep upright. Luckily she felt the same balance on the 950, so she had lots of confidence riding it!
