Just get a string or measuring tape and measure you're self! Most sights that sell them explain how!!

I'm 6' 190lbs and measured a Large, but Jalaan whos 5'9 167 said I could have gone Medium because his Medium is to big! so when I get home I'll have to see if I was right!

i tried using a piece and duct tape and ran it around the upper part of my chest and then measured it to get a rough estimate so hopefully that works lol

Alot of reputable companies are good at sizing. Call them and give them your measurements. They will probly be able to get an accurate sizing on the jacket.

You might want to go try some on before you buy one, I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs (roughly the same size as you) and I have a small Icon jacket. It's a little loose on me, but still fits good.

Yeah, it's not so bad. I had to get used to standing still at a stop, my toes just barely touch. But now that I have the balance of the bike semi-figured out, it's not so bad. I've been told that I'm very in-proportion to this bike when riding it.

Well I don't usually back it uphill, when I park in the garage I ride it in, and back it out. When I do have to back it up a slight incline, I'll get off the bike and lean it up against my body so it won't fall over and push it back. I can back it up on level ground while sitting on it, but it takes a lot of calf effort. I'm sure in couple years of experience my calves are going to be huge.

Turn it around and ride it up.

Sizing will get you close, but everybody is comfortable in a different "fit" and bodies can sometimes be shaped weird as well. Best bet is to find a shop where you can physically try one on, or if you haven't missed it already hit up the IMS bike show and look for one to try on. Also keep in mind that they do break in a little bit, so if one size is just a tiny bit snug but the next size feels loose, you may want to go with the smaller.
