I have never owned an LT but have commited to buy '05 one in Seattle in a few days. My wife will be going with me to pick it up and travel back with me. Will she comfortably reach the stock pegs or will I have to considering changing to the adjustable ones?

Mi SO is also 5'2" but has a short inseam or as she says "a long torso" ;) She was not comfortable on stock pegs but is on the Adjustable floor boards all the way up.

My best friend is 5'2" and she reached the pegs OK. I bought here some passenger floor boards and she is much more comfortable.

My 14 year old daughter is 4' 11", she reaches fine, but then again, she is 14.

While the wife is not 14 (any more) she is 4'11. Stock seat and stock pegs work so good for her, that she told me to take off the Corbin and she did not need floor boards. :D

Suggest the adjustable pegs from Bob's BMW or the BMW floorboards. My problem with the boards was they cut into the back of my heels. W is 4'10"

Congrats on your find. Ride safe!

My 5'2" wife also said she was very happy with the stock pegs.........until I tried some adjustable boards. She was so comfortable with them that she threatened me with my life if I took the boards back off.

She also rides with them all the way to the top.

My wife is 5'2" and she whines a little about the pegs being low. This indicates 3 things to me:

1.) The pegs are low
2.) She's not complaining about the seat comfort and
3.) She's riding with me.

Number 3 is the most important! Should fix the pegs.

My wife is 5' 2" and the stock pegs lasted about a week after getting the '09 LT, then it was time to get the floorboards, at her insistence. We had passenger floorboards on our old Moto Guzzi and she found the floorboards much more comfortable and she felt more secure because she got a better grip than with the pegs. Congrats on the LT purchase.

The 'ol SO would probably brain me if I put it in writing how sh.. I mean TALL she is :p But let's just say she's definitely in the ballpark with the numbers being thrown around. She was always very comfy on the LT, although she almost always has heels that are a few inches long on.

My wife is 5'4", and still weighs in at 115 lbs, after 28 years of marriage. Man, that woman is HOT! :dance:

But, I digress... She's just fine on the stock pegs, and turned down the offer of floorboards. She'll also kill me if she ever sees this post!! LOL :D

My wife is just a little taller (5'6")
but she has said that the BMW floorboards are near the top of the list of things she likes about the LT
the others are the seat, intercom
and her Gerbings heated liner and pants.

and of course the rider. :)

My wife is 5'7" and very comfortable on the back of the LT. My sister is 4'11" on a good day and long past 14. She came for a visit this spring and we put about 500 miles on the LT. She loved it and was very comfortable. Every day she wanted to get on the bike and go. The great thing is if your piilion is not comfortable there are a lot of aftermarket things to make it work. Enjoy the ride.

My wife is 14 years old, 5'4" and 120lbs.

Before the foot peg risers and Muddiman armrests modified with visco foam she was not all that fond of riding on the LT. Says it makes her feel much more secure.

She likes riding now so much I think I may stay married to her until she's 18 or so, then trade her in for a newer, younger model. :D

Oh yeah, after 16 years of marriage she still cooks. :thumb:

The problem you will have here is once you complete the "trade-in" the new model will always break down, you'll have to reset the modec and constantly adjust the valves... Much easier to say yes dear and keep the current and not make those terribly high payments.... :D
