My wife is 5'-5" and I bought a spare seat which I carved out just so my wife could experience motorcycling (she has a Harley). I cut it down quite a bit in the front and we did a 100-mile day. She can't quite flat-foot, there's about 1/2" of daylight at her heels, be she was quite confident on it.
You can also get lowering links. The first V-Strom owner I met was a lady, about the same height who put 37,000 mles on her bike before she lowered it.
Good luck, I'm looking forward to seeing you and DirtMom in Stecoah.
