Glad to find this forum.

Looking to buy an AT. I'm 5-11 but have short legs , 30 inch inseam. I guess I will have to get a lowering link.

Welcome, and I'm exactly your size and have no problem riding the bike as is. Mine is the 2017 with the 2 position seat and while I have on occasion lowered it to the lower setting , 90% of the time I leave it on the higher level and am fine with it. Not sure if the newer models are taller but if not you should be fine. Where are you at in NC? I ride up there quite a bit and love the western part of the state.

I'm 5' 4" with a 29" inseam. I don't have any trouble with my AT but I have had to change my technique. To get on, I put my left foot on the peg, while on the side stand and throw my leg over. At traffic lights I put my left foot flat on the ground and shift my hips, my right foot is on the brake. I suggest that you give the bike a chance, before you rush into things.
