Handle bars for short riders

Has anyone changed for a "taller-higher" handle bars on the 05 F4 1000?
Of course because I am short, only 5'5' with shorter arms and legs.
Any help and all help are welcome.
Thanks

So is it you can't reach the bars or is it just too comfortable? I'm 5'5 too with 32/33 shirt sleeve length.

Why not move the MV into the living room? This is a win win situation for everyone.

comfortable, warm and dry, they wife would be happy because he would be inside spending quality time with her instead of out in the garage...

I think I'm going to open up a marriage counseling business.
