My wife is 5'6" and we had to lower her 07 R6.
When she signed up for the MSF course they were booked up and it was going to be about 6 weeks before she could take it.
I got online and found a MSF course being given at the local community college for "Women Only" and she was able to get right in and knocked it out.
She's practiced alot in parking lots and then alot more on the road and we just took our first "road trip" this weekend and she did great !!
