I can only get a big toe down on either side, and that's with wearing thick soled boots. I preferred to get used to riding the bike the way it is as I would hate to lose any cornering clearance. I should also mention that I am 70 with a destroyed left knee. Getting a new one in 2 weeks, so will not be able to ride for a while, but the point is, just get used to the height. It is not necessary to have your feet flat on the floor. Just need to exercise more care when stopping and starting. Also practice persuading the bike back onto its feet after it gets tired. This tends to happen a lot when you are a short arse.
