Russell Day Long safe for shorter riders?

Don't have a Russell Day Long seat on my Wing BUT I'm 5-6 with 29 inseam and I have ridden Goldwings for over 10 years only being able to touch the ground with my tippy toes without issue. All a matter of balance.

BTW ... Russell Day Long seats are great ... I do have one on my Vstrom and I'm on tippy toes on that one too.



2013 (Lev3) Candy Alizarin Red Honda Goldwing - 92,409 miles
2011 Black Suzuki V-Strom 650A - 24,060 miles

* My previous Black 2004 Goldwing - 278,419 miles in 9+ years.

Life is like riding a motorcycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving ... nothing but two wheels and the open road!
