I'm 5'6", 29" inseam. Harley sells the equipment to modify the bike for smurfs like us.

Seats
There are two, the reach and the ultra-reach (various names listed) Both lower you down and bring you forward. The reach by about an inch each way, the ultra-reach scoots you forward about 2".

Bars
Reach bars come back further, as do the heritage bars. There are others as well. Go further and you'll need some cable and wiring extensions.

Suspension
It can be lowered 1" or 2".

With this, you'll be sitting there with your feet flat on the ground, knees bent, comfortably in charge of the bike.
