I've begun my shopping experience along with my friend Tom, and gf Kristi. We're on the hunt for fantastic bike with low miles, and undervalued price tags. Where are they?

I responded to your same query on HUBB. As I said there ... and will repeat ... YES ... you can raise the bike up by changing the linkage arms (Aka Dog bones) different bones allow you to go UP or Down on the bike. Don't go too far as you can only lower the fork tubes a slight amount and its a good idea to more or less match the two, although not critical.

A custom seat is also a good idea. Many tall dirt bike riders do this.
Ask on the Big DR thread here for sources for Dog bones to raise your DR up some. (don't go more than an inch)
