Question Looking @ A Wee Strom But Vertically Challanged

I Like The Looks And Features Of The Wee Strom But I Am Only 5'6".

I Have Had A Few Bikes The Last 15 Years & Currently Own A 2006 H-D 1200 Sportster R & My First Bike A 1993 Yamaha Seca II XJ 600.

My Question Can The Wee Strom Be Lowered To A Seat Height @ Or Around 29 / 30 Inches?

My wife is 5'6" and loves her DL650. I put 1" lowering links on it. She was still on her toes a little, but not too much to handle. I don't know what the seat height is now, but after some breaking in it got even lower. She'll never flat foot it, but it's not a problem.

Hi

I am 5'4" and have been riding one for 3 years or so now. I have the lowering links installed.

I cannot flat foot it, but I am comfortable with it.

Cheers
