Height question....

I'm a new rider and I'm pretty much set on a suzuki gs500f. I'm 5'8" and I was just wondering if the bike would be a good fit for me. Will I be too short for the bike? I've seen the spec sheet for this bike and the seat height seems to be ok for my height. Feedback would be lovely. Thanks.

I think you'll be fine. My wife rides and is only about 5'1"-5'2". Have you actually gone and seen one and sat on it a bit? That will tell you far more about fit than anyone online can.

No, I haven't actually saddled on the bike, but I plan on doing so very soon. Thanks.
