Too Tall Bike Help-Questions K12GT
OK, here is the deal- we went over to the dealership this morning to sit on the K12GT... raining too hard for test ride. She liked the passenger seating pretty good, but I found it was still an inch or so higher than I thought comfortable.
I would hate to drop it with her on board, and since I was tippy-toe sort of, actually balls of feet down- it was not like I was totally confident.
The 2004 vintage GTs are probably the same height and the seat was in the low position.
What can be done, within a reasonable way to lower this bike? Or adjustments to my head to make it feel better? I have the R1100R bike but it is lower by that inch.
There must be some wizard tricks out there... Help!
