Thank you so much for this review. I am also 5'3" and have been looking at the M50 - and loving it. I just was not sure if I would be comfortable on it. I currently have a Honda Rebel 250, which has been great for learning on. But it is time to move up a bit. Looking forward to getting the new ride.

I am glad to see this, because I am upgrading to a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard M50 from my starter bike, a Suzuki GZ250, and I was second guessing if I went too big. I too am 5'3" and was a little concerned about the weight difference.
