Hi all.

Recently have been scouring the ads for an older motorcycle and was inspired by an MT500. Rather shamed to admit that they have eluded my interest in the past. Now in the process of researching as much as possible, and what better way than on this forum! Yet to see one face to face, so my initial concern, as I'm a mere 5' 6", is the riding height.

Welcome John
Don't worry too much about ride height, you can easily slide the front forks up and drop front end by 4 inches, resculpt saddle dropping 1 1/2 inches, and/or fit shorter rear shocks on an MT500 Tyres also vary, off road tyres can be 1/2 inch taller than on-off road

One MT350 rider is 5ft 3 1/2in
