Default First Motorcycle: The Quest for The Best?

I want to start off by saying the motorcycle community is the best there is. Hands Down. I'm looking for a great first motorcycle. I'm a 5'2''120 pound male. Inseam challenged if you will. I've ridden the Rebel at an MSF course. I've been reading that it's a good bike, for the first month. I wanted a Kawasaki Vulcan 500 LTD, but I was told they weren't in CA because of emissions. Go figure. So I turned to a Suzuki Boulevard S40 (Savage). I had a seat on the bike at the dealership and it felt nice. The 650cc and belt drive is a plus. I ran into a Triumph the other day and let me just say that I know what my dream bike is now. Would the Triumph Bonneville SE or T100 be a good choice? Would I have to modify the seats? Any other recommendations for a good first bike? I live in the city, but I will be doing freeway time. I'm the type to go on a long winding journey at the drop of a hat. Help me please! ------
