Whats up R3 forum I just got my motorcycle license and want a harley but recently the R3 has grabbed my attention I been trying to find one at a dealer to see how it fits me but that is proving to be harder then I thought. I am short 5'5 so have a feeling it will be to high. This will be my first bike and also something I plan on teaching my wife how to ride on.

The R3 is very low. I'm 5'8" and at stoplights when I stand up to stretch I feel as if I'm getting up from a chair. I don't think you'll have any problem flat footing this bike.
Welcome, f2! Used to be from CT, too! Moved to CA 2 years ago. Best of luck on your R3 hunt!
Welcome from England hope you get one soon.
I am 5'5" and i have no problems with the bike. I can't flat foot both feet but thats never been an issue.
I'm in CT too! what part of the state are you in?
