I recently got my new to me RGU and having short femurs was challenged with being on my toes and up against a hot primary cover. The day I picked the bike up I dropped it off at a local shop (near the house) and had them add a lowering block in back and progressive springs in front. The net was about an inch. It was enough that I could force myself to flat foot it but was still not where I wanted to be. Swapping out my seat to a Ultra Limited Low seat finished out that step of the project. I can flat foot it even on the side stand now. Huge difference. Still getting used to the bike but loving it so far.
