I'm normally not that fast or lean that much over - I move my upper body into a corner, but don't shift on the seat. That's only an indicator to the cops that you're going way too fast and they pull you out sometimes based on that impression. Nevertheless, at some point in time I scraped with the V-Strom, the F800GS, even the R1200GS, but the Tiger takes the candle - touches down the earliest of these bikes.

What version did you go with? +15mm?

Update: did a little bit of math and some guesstimates regarding the bike (can't measure right now), but I don't think the lean angle improves that much with that mod either, I ended up estimating something around 3 degrees. Better than nothing though.
