I recently rode the Suzuki Boulevard C50 belonging to my heavy friend (referred to in a post called "Heavy weight) and her's has the heel portion of the shifter just aft of the floorboard, making the upshifts a delight. One light tap with the heel and you're in business. With our set-up on the LT, a similar action would be possible, if positioned correctly, thereby reducing the risk of damaging the linkage with heavy-heeled upshifts. Might be something to consider for those who have floorboards, or wish they had them.
I agree it would be great to have a heel shifter (like on my goldwing). My new boots are larger (thicker) then my old boots and getting my toe between the peg and the shifter is difficult.
