Around here, they're referred to as "Kickables".

Well, thanks for the useful posts anyway. I don't plan on going straight to my dream bike or anything, I just wanted to know if it's even possible for me to purchase one in the future, or if it's too dangerous since I'm too short.

You're average Superbike rider is 5'6". The tallest of riders usually isn't over 5'9".
It's not the size of the bike you should worry about. It's the skill you take to that bike when your ready that matters.

Post number 3 in this thread has all your answers.

Ask Pedrosa how short is too short.

Or Burleson, for that matter.
