Taller Rider - Lowering Foot Pegs and Seat Options
I have been enjoying my 2008 Versys 650 immensely compared to the Bonneville I had. I am happy I purchased the bike used because I already had two silly spills with it. I thought I had the kickstand down and I didn't. So I ended up going down on my side. Luckily, I did not hurt myself but felt pretty stupid as the security guard and janitor saw the whole thing happen. There were nice enough to help. A little scratch on the bike and small amount of coolant spilled ...but otherwise all is good.
So far, I have put the mirror extenders on which has given me an extra level of safety due to increased visibility.
I am interesting in lowering the foot peg blocks. Is that an option? What can you get/recommend? I would like to reduce the angling of my knees on the tank as well as have more room for clearance when shifting with my boots.
Also, what seat options do people recommend for better ergonomics and long riding comfort for touring?
