Hmmm - I'm the same shape and size as you and have no problem touching down on either a wee or a vee. Besides trying a wee-strom seat, try raising the forks 3/4 inch the triple clamps. Motorcycledaily.com has an article and review on this from several years ago, suggesting it improves handling and steering as well.
My inseam-challenged colleague rides a wee with a sargent seat. He has both feet almost flat - not too tipsy at all.
