Dealer likes to lower
I am 5'7" tall. The dealer when I bought my bike tried to talk me into lowering it when I bought it. I told them NO do not lower the bike. I had them move the floorboards back all the way,which for me was good. They were almost insistant on lowering the bike for my short legs. I had to be very insistant to leave the bike the "STOCK" height. The salesman & mechanic both nice guys were both much taller than me, and they really thought it would benefit me, I had to disagree. I told them I did not want to drag the bike through the turns. I have put 18K on the bike since new. Guess what I never have lowered it and yes I did drag on the right one time, just think if I had lowered it , it may have dragged many more times. To each there own on style I guess and looks. I test rode the Triumph Thunderbird a couple of times and during the first test ride I drug the bike four times through the turns, figured bike was not for me, even though I really liked the engine and transmission. For me if I can put my feet on the pavement safely I do not see a reason to lower a bike.
