Any available options for a lowered Seat? I'm 5'8" and can only get 1 foot comfortably planted. I actually have to reposition myself just a little while coming to a stop so not that comfortably. Short rider problems. I really don't want to lower the bike by getting aftermarket springs.

Any suggestions?

You might check with an upholstery shop to see if they can make a custom seat using your OEM seat pan. Most after market seats offer more comfort which usually means the same amount of padding or even more.

yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. I found a Hyperpro lowering kit that will lower 1 inch. I might pull the trigger on it.

It feels funny to put both feet down. I only do both if I need extra stability because of wind, passenger, etc. Hell, if it's a quick stop, I don't put anything down. I just balance in place for a second and go.

I think it's freaking hilarious when I see some squid in shorts, t-shirt, and no gloves paddle-walk their stretched "busa" to a stop and then dangle their Croc covered feet in the air for the next block when they take off. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
