    Turns out using proper riding boots rather than my work shoes, if I flat foot one foot the other foot is about 1/2 inch off the ground. Once I put the panniers on the bike (empty) the small difference is enough to flat foot both feet with factory suspension which was a nice surprise. Thanks all for the help.

    Thanks, will do. After a few months of riding, I will come and post a 'new rider' review of the F7.
