Short answer: No.

Longer answer:
The thing is, you're not hugely tall, so the shorter seat height of the 250 would be much better for you when you're learning. The power should be enough to entertain you for your first season of two wheeling Insurance on a 250 is almost negligible, too. On the other hand, if you're going to be using the bike as your only vehicle or something, the 500 makes a much more agreeable commuter on the highway.

Either way, take an msf course first. They'll have 250's for you to try out. If it feels too small for you there, then you'd want to move up to the 500 I think.
