I've had my 2013 V since March of this year, and it was quite an adjustment from my first bike, a Suzuki TU250x in more ways than one. The most noticable (pleasantly) of all is the increase in power of course. The next is the seat height. When I first got it, I recall having to REALLY tip toe when at a stop. It was during this initial period of ownership that I dropped the bike on both sides at a very slow speed because of its height-luckily I had already installed my crash bars.
However, as time went by and I guess my comfort level with the bike improved, I hardly notice that I can't flat foot the bike. It seems to me that my feet now when tip toeing, are not as high as it used to be.
Could it be that the bike, because of my weight, has settled to its more permanent height, or have I gotten really comfortable with my V that it's seems normal to me or I've grown an inch or two
(this is highly unlikely, if not impossible as I am an old man of 53!
Have any of you guys and gals experience this with your V? Just curious.
p.s. I tried to practice 2 up with my wife, but still too high for her to get on.
