I currently ride a Kawasaki 1600 Nomad but am thinking about moving up to a 1500-1800 Goldwing. I am vertically challenged in the height department...5'6"...and have a short inseam. I lowered my Nomad and was wondering is their a kit or way to lower the Goldwing. I like the Nomad but would love the storage and comfort the Goldwing.

thanks, Doug

The Wings have a 29" seat height or higher depending on the model and year (30.5" was the tallest i believe). There are ways to lower them with shorter shocks etc but it's not really a good idea. Lots of riders with height issues use elevator soled footwear to help compensate for it. I'd suggest popping into a local dealer and sitting on some bikes before making a complete decision. You may find that the reach to the ground isn't all that bad for you, or you may find it all wrong. Try it and see.
Oh, and welcome to GWOF
