Lowered Versys

My inseam challenged wife had until recently resigned herself to riding some sort of cruiser. Her current steed is a Sportster 1200 Low with Mid-mount Pegs that still get drug frequently. Last week she test rode a lowered 2006 BMW F650GS. She couldn't flatfoot it, but got close enough and loved the riding position and nimbleness. We are now actively seeking the HD's replacement. We have read posts on multiple forums now about vertically challenged women riding lowered Versys'. We are skeptical. My stock V is so tall she won't even try to get on it. Does anyone in the Houston/Conroe/Livingston, TX area have a lowered V she can try to throw a leg over?

Wouldn't that be a hoot!! Two Versyses in one family! You know a lowered Ninja 650 or ER-6 might be even better for her inseam, with similar riding position. Maybe a tiny bit leaned over, but not bad.... Of course, I'm sure you guys thought of that already.....
