I'm only 5'9 and have the balls of my feet on the ground when riding solo with the shock at its lowest setting. When riding two up or with luggage, I can only tip toe due to having to raise the shock. I'm fine with that. It doesn't make me nervous or uncomfortable. But that's just me. Not everyone is 6'0 tall or taller. There is nothing wrong with lowering your bike. It's what's so great about what we do. We all customize our bikes for each of us. What works for some doesn't work for others.
