You may be able to get your tip-toes on the floor, but that´s about it. I´m 6´2, and even with a full load (Suspension compressed) and the seat low I can ONLY get the balls of my feet on the road. When I stop in traffic it is always risky. I flat foot one side, the other dangles in mid-aid.
If I were any shorter the ADV would be a hazard to ride. And, forget about fighting it if it starts to go over. A short person doesn´t have a chance. Not to mention trying to get the thing back up.
I just completed a 14,000 mile ride. Every stop was nerve racking. And stopping in heavy wind? Please, you don´t want to here about that. Every mile was a blast, but stopping, forget it.
