He has a point. My wife is 5'4" and after the 4 inch risers and 2 inch lowering, she fell in love with it.morleyz said:My wife had an '04 Volusia and could never get comfortable on it...she was always in a high, leaning far forward position to be happy and the bars were really wide. In the end we ended selling it and buying a 750 Aero which is much more comfortable. The Vol was much faster, but she's not too worried about it since she couldn't keep up with me on the X anyway.
While it's a good bike, I would make sure she sits on a bunch of different bikes that are similar size and find what's comfortable...otherwise you'll be going through tons of different seat/riser/bar combinations trying to adjust the bike.
