    To all riders like myself, under 6 feet tall :

    You may find that the stock seat height of many dirt bikes (and perhaps some street bikes) is very, very uncomfortable. Damn near impossible. I know I did. So I ordered suspension lowering links ( many brands available, all under GBP 100 ) and had them put on my KLX 250. Best GBP 100 I spent in recent times, highly recommended !
