What is the Best Harley Davidson for Short Riders?

What Harley Should I Buy if I’m Short?

Many men that ride bikes do so for a variety of reasons. Some just like the wind in their hair (under the helmet, of course.) Others love the Biker culture. Some do it for the attention. Others do it as a hobby. No matter what the reason, safety is a top concern.

And rider safety is why the type of Harley is so key. Furthermore, this is especially important depending on the height of the rider. Some bikers don’t want to admit they’re short. It’s understandable. However, certain bikes are better for certain body types.

Motorcycle.com is very clear on the subject. There are plenty of options for shorter riders. Some are Harleys, and others are just as good. Some of the other brands that make sense include the Honda CTX700, which offers excellent handling for shorter riders. Others include the Kawasaki Ninja 300.

Look Out for Harley Specific Bikes

If Japanese bikes are not your thing, there are plenty of other options out there for you. American choppers, such as the Harley, are available. Even the Harley forums bring up the subject and opportunities for more vertically challenged adults.

A Harley Nightrod offers one option, depending on the arm and leg length of the rider. Furthermore, both Dynas and Softails provide options for shorter riders. Low riders, in general, allow some more flexibility for such a small rider.

Each one of these offers advantages and drawbacks for the rider. However, they do allow the ability to choose. More experienced riders can use these to improve their ride. Less experienced bikers are less likely to get into accidents or face issues through ignorance.

The road is a dangerous enough place for motorcycles. Make sure that you have the right rig to ensure the safety of yourself and your family. It’s just common sense.
