Welcome, Alice. The strom is rather tall, so if you post your leg length many who've made minor modifications can tell you what they did to make the bike better fit them--move the handle bars, seat mods, lower the bike, etc. The stom feels top heavy to the new-to-strom rider when it is going very slowly, so one tip--get it stopped with feet down before you look around at traffic--mine got a coupl'a scratches while I learned that lesson. Once you get the feel for it, no problem, you'll probably be able to keep feet up while momentarily stopped at a stop sign. There are other adjustments to be made to the bike to make it fit and work best for any rider.
Anyway, very fun, very reliable, very economical, did I say fun?, bike. Welcome aboard.
