Smile Riding position/forward controls

I've read that the forward controls are a bit of a reach for shorter guys. I've also read that on the 2012 models that condition is at least somewhat improved. I've also been told that it's only improved on the Night Rod and not the Muscle. Can anyone give me a definitive answer? I'm 5'7". Just ordered my Muscle for delivery in May when i get home from serving in Afghanistan. Can someone help me out?

The Muscles have always came with the adjustable reduce reach pegs can be flipped to the rear setting for about two inch closer, I'm 5'8" and have no problem, no problem in the forward position either just puts the right leg closer to the rear pipe, have your dealer flip them for you to save yourself the trouble

I think the new bikes come with 1.25" reduced reach. Supposed to fit more people.
