I'm 5'6" with a 30" inseam and I ride an RS. I actually
prefer the seat in the middle position 'cause the lowest
position makes my knees achy.

I spent a week on a rented Suzuki Freewind in NZ
last year. The bike had been lowered, but they didn't
shorten the sidestand. It was precarious to park on
any kind of a slope. If I ever had that choice again,
I'll stick to the full height version.
