A friend of mine who is also real short has an SVS and does great with it. We did a couple of mods for her which helped a ton. First off, you can take out about an inch of the seat foam and it still is comfortable. Then we had custom dogbones made to lower the rear end about another inch (cost about $45), and then lowered the front forks a bit to compensate for lowering the back. This has worked real well. Before doing the mods she dropped the bike twice at low speed due to her not being comfortable on it, and sicne she has had no problems. It's a great bike to start on.
