Welcome to the site.
I am basically a tour rider so don't know that model very well at all. When the dealer is open, go sit on that thing and see if you can plant both heels firmly at once in the showroom. If you can, maybe it would work for you. Then it is time for a test drive. If not, try the other models that they have. There is bound to be something short enough to fit you well. I am looking at the Vic Vision because the Goldwing is just too tall for me to control properly. I would love to have that 6 cylinder touring bike but no way am I going to ride with training wheels so that I can stop it. I would be fine on it from 5 to 100 MPH but at a stop it would fall over on me. I actually tried one and gave up because of the leg reach to the ground.
If you have not ridden lately, take the basic riding skills course. It is a great refresher and will improve your skills. I took my first ever course and graduated on my 60th birthday. It helped me a lot when I thought I was ready to re-enter the riding world.
Present ride - 2013 Victory Vision, black, ATW at +3, Lloydz air filter and adjustable intake, PC5, 30,xxx miles
