Seat height from ground

Postby SkipRope » Thu Jun 07, 2012 8:47 am



I see the specs show 30.1 inches. Is this from the ground to top of the seat? If soare there any lowering options?

You can always trim foam, but there isn't a whole lot to trim in the 1500. Better, you could go with something like a Corbin, that has narrower cutouts in the front, so your legs don't have to spread as far at the top, giving you more ability to reach the ground.

Great. My inseam is 28" so that is good news. I had a Goldwing years ago and i don't remember that critical stat.
