Comments on the height; I find it is a bit high when sitting with no load but after I sit on it she really settles. And I'm a skinny fucker I weigh about 160. Mind you I'm 6'2". But my uncle who's about 5'11" had no problem getting on either.
I haven't looked but I imagine there may be a shaved seat for sale somewhere too. Worth a look
