Talking Hello all

Whats up everyone my name is Justyn I just started riding about 2 weeks ago, my second bike I just picked up yesterday is a Suzuki GSx600F its a 1996 and I like it allot, I read some other threads about how your supposed to start off smaller, but I dont seem to have any problems with mine, also I read that if its your first bike you should be able to flat foot it at a standstill, I am 5'5 and I have to tip tow this thing :P I can handle the bike just fine, but I am asking for any of your opinions on my situation every thing seems to be going just fine, but I really want to hear some expert advice. Thanks in advance.

(Also I should note I rode my broken 05 Suzuki GS500F for the first two weeks of my riding then the engine died so its not like I hopped on my 600 right away :P )

It's possible to lower these bikes a couple inches. It may be a lot more comfortable for you.
