Thinking you could get your seat lowered. Sargent can do this on this side of the pond for us.

In the Seattle area there is a guy that can take an inch out of your seat by rebuilding it. He did it for my wife's FJR. It is kind of expensive but worth it. Maybe there is a guy in your area that can look at that for you.

I recently went back to my old lace up work boots. Had em for about 25 years.

Its like night and day. Much better foot control.

No way Im going back to those narrow ones!
Those boots look like my old Red wing boots.

The height of the rider is not the deciding factor, as the inseam is not a fixed length by height.

I'm 6'2' but my inseam is 32 inches.
My sister was 5'2" and her inseam was 32 inches.

I'm tall in the saddle but short in the gittup.

I have been concerned about dropping my bike on a solo ride and not being able to lift it. Do you know the source of this foot pump?
