Interesting.....rider in pic has his tip toes on the pegs , appears that the peg is located directly under your butt. Standing shouldn't be too difficult. The 700X looks to be a well constructed machine (I see one every time I visit my Dealer for goodies) , the 500 is coming in under 6K. In this economy , those #'s are pleasing. I've owned 8 Honda motorcycles , My wife 2 , I've never seen them use inferior parts on any of the machines I've owned. But I just bought a 2012 DL1000 (new) , and spent an extra Grand buying stuff to make it what I feel is a better Adventure bike. Did Suzuki skimp? In my opinion , yes , but others would say they love theirs straight from the crate. So if you end up with a Honda , you will probably "upgrade" the things you feel need to be upgraded. I love my Strom , but I also like the direction Honda is heading in too.
