When stopped at redlight, how much of your feet touch the ground?
To keep bike "vertical"

tips toes(both feet at once)
balls of feet(both feet at once)
1 ball and 1 tip toe
both full foots(heals)(both feet at once)
1 full foot+ tip toes or balls of feet?
or can you stand up, both feet on ground without your butt touching seat?


Do you feel like your stretching at all to touch ground or do anything?

Just curious.

With shoes on of course. no barefoot or sandal people allowed to reply!

I'm 5'7" so I usually just tip to one side a bit and keep my foot flat on the ground.

5'11" with both feet flat, but I guess it would also depend on your inseam. You can always have the bike lowered.

yea not to many hills down here in so cal but its just a little nerve rattling not being able to have both feet firmly down. still pondering a 1" lowering till i am very comfy on the bike and then raising it back up....?

im about 6'5. i usually just sit and plant both feet flat. depending on the surface if im on a hill i cover the rear brake, or sometimes use the front, rarely do i keep one foot down. if i do its my right so i can kick into first and take off!

that's what i did. i bought a Soupys Lowering link http://www.soupysperformance.com/homepage.html

its fully adjustable. so you can drop it as low as you need. no set lengths like 1 or 3 inches. you can do 1.23465 inches if you need. then gradually raise it back up to stock height by turning a couple nuts. you dont have to reinstall to change height. its really good.

i miss OC. i never got a chance to ride around OC on my bike :( i would really love to take it down there but damn the drive/ride is long.
