Re: High seat position discomfort
I have not had this problem, but I have a backrest so I wonder if that is helping. I put on lowered peg extenders etc, thinking that I could run the seat in its low position, making it easier to put my feet down at stop with fully loaded bags. While the latter is true (for me), I still prefer the high position as I'm more in control of the bike at all speeds, the only downside being that my feet are "almost" flat vs definitely flat at stop. I'm 6ft so maybe height or leg length makes a difference? My ride is an '05 and the seat is quite "plush".
Hope this helps.
