I'm 5'1" and own a couple of bikes (250 Ninja & 950 VStar).

I was very interested in the Gladius, with the upright bars & stripped down look. Good to know it can be lowered somewhat.

Is the TTR a trail bike or do you ride it on the street? Either way, best of luck in your search. It's not easy being a tiny rider, but press on!!

I am 5' 2". I was very comfortable on a Honda 750 Areo. I now have a Suzuki gladius, a kind of sport bike. The gladius can be lowered. I learned to shift my hips to the left when I stop and put my right foot on the brake. It takes some practice but it works for me.
The Honda cruiser was exactly the right size for me.

The gladius moves much faster when you start, so be forewarned that these two bikes handle very differently.

Take care.
