I sat on an FZ-08 today and i had to lean forward a little which would have been a deal breaker for me on that bike anyway. So can someone tell me if i will be more up rite on the FZ-09 I am 5'6" with a 30" inseam. I hope so because it will be a deal breaker for me and then their will be much sadness...

For sure the FZ9 is much more upright. Bars are 2" higher than the FZ8. Pegs are a bit lower, too, I recall. Should be pretty roomy. FZ8 really is great for smaller guy but the reach forward is a bit more aggressive than a true standard or even most naked bikes. Bars are a touch narrower, too.
