Getting further from the ground
I have a 2000 R1100R, which is a totally fabulous bike except that the seat is just a bit too low and on a long ride my legs get way too stiff. I even take to stretching them out over the top of the cylinders, but that's not too good for the leather on the back of the boots... With the seat set at its highest I can place both feet flat on the ground well out from the bike. I have a Corbin seat, incidentally.
Does anyone know of a seat raising kit? Another inch or so would be great!
