It's perfect since I am only 5'3" and at my age not going to get any taller. Thanks for the comments. It's the "Girley Bike" because my daughter and I ride it because we are not tall enough to ride my hubby's 1200 Sportster.

I've been riding for 40 years, had a KZ900 when they first came out, had a Moto Guzzi when I wanted to tour the US and now have a VLX. I mostly use it to commute and its become my favorite bike. Very easy to handle, fantastic gas mileage, and doesn't complain too much on the hoghway.

All my bikes are "Girley Bikes"

Since I AM a girl, albeit an OLD ONE, every single one of my bikes are "Girley Bikes" but I refuse to name them!

Tell the truth, how many of you NAME your bikes GIRL names! I always thought that was, well, kinda creepy. . .

Love you ALL. . .

And I refuse to ride a PINK and purple bike. . .shoot, I SOLD a Yamaha vstar 650 because it was purple. My current scoot is an 05 VT1100C2 with that over-macho black with flames paint. I would prefer an all black, but the cost to paint is more than I paid for the bike, so I just "suffer" all that fake testosterone and hope that no one thinks I am anything other than a girl.

Doh! Never even crossed my mind. Still, only thing girly about the bike is the flesh in the seat.

Ha. I hadn't even thought to look at your profile. Wait, that didn't sound ... oh hell.

Nothin wrong with old. Nothin wrong with purple. I name people and animals. Not things. I do, however, refer to mine as "she". B!tch has a temper worse than my wife.

My head just exploded since I'm in the middle of watching Indiana Jones Last Crusade... All of a sudden imagined the motorcycle chase on that thing. Good times.

I'd say you got a good small framed cruiser! Those 600s are tough as anvils (almost as tough as the Rebels I'd say).

I guess if you go under the impression that many women are shorter than men this bike would have a tendency to fit women more comfortably than men but lots of guys ride these. My 1100 has almost been retired in favor of a "tiny" 550 but there is no way my wife can fit that bike. She could almost flat-foot the 1100. I thought it was funny when I brought the 550 home everyone thought I picked up a little bike for the wife! Au contraire...
