Motorbikes for short riders

As a 5' 4" female biker I have found that many motorbikes are impossible for me to ride (without modification) due to the standard seat height. A good example of this are the adventure bikes, such as the Triumph Tiger.

However, all is not lost as lots of manufacturers are making bikes that naturally have a lower seat, or the offer a free low-seat swap option, like BMW and Suzuki.

I have spent quite a bit of time reading about different bikes, sitting on them and taking them for test rides.
It seemed sensible to share this information with the wider world as I'm sure there are many male and female shorties that would like to find a bike they can comfortably get one or two feet down on.
