Ride high Park low... Possible?

I've got a small dillema... I like long trips on the bike and need storage. So Sumax Wide Extended bags are in order. I ride hard so need some clearance so bags don't rub, yet I want to park w/o the kickstand. So in otherwords is it possible to get the bike riding high and park low.

Air Ride system, you can drop it to the frame if you remove the bump stops. But there is a danger with doing that If you loose pressure while riding it will drop to the frame at speed. Also the handling may not be as good as a quality shock like Ohlins, Progressive or Works, Terrycable could provide.

Full on bagged air suspension can lower the bike all the way down.

Way to pricey for me, but possible.

Air ride system is your best bet. Probably around 1500-2500 depending on the system. Although you may be able to drop it super low I imagine you would have to modify the frame to make it sit on the ground.

Or throw a 300 center stand on it.
