Being short is not always fun. Being short means that you have a hard time finding the perfect size for clothes or shoes and you always have to spend extra money to get thing altered for yourself. It also means that you can’t reach high places, or drive without adjusting your seat or sitting dangerously close to the steering wheel. But hey, that's alright! Fortunately there is a solution for this.
You may not find the right fit for your clothes or they might not be a car specifically made for short people but, there definitely are motorcycles that are designed especially for short riders.
We at Siima MotoWear, have done some research and we present the top five motorcycles for short riders:
