That's a classic example how every rider is different. I'm also 5'8 from recolection that's about 178cm, my torso is larger, therefore my legs are shorter but I still raised the bike 1" & I have some sheep skin on the riders position. If the bike is completely in an upright position than only the ball of my foot is on the ground, with a little lean I'm flat footed. When off road with gear & preload up gives me alot more confidence off road, plus that's my style of riding.
All big up front, IMO better touring onroad, offroad you can muscle it around, makes it fun
