Short riders

Hello from a new member. I am seriously considering the purchase of a K1300s. Being a short rider (5'6". 28" inseam), I am interested in advice from the vertically challenged riding this bike including any experiences with the low seat and bar risers.
Many thanks.

Gday Brian.
Im 5.7 and can sit flat footed on my unmodified K 200S.
Its not an issue and even less with decent soled boots or shoes on.. Just careful as usual when footing around a loose surface.
Just do it!
