Yea, it sucks. I dropped my baby. It's embarrassing honestly, and I think the reason is because the bike is just a bit tall for me. I'm on tippy toes at red lights, it's a bit better when my girlfriend is on the back, but I'd like to be able to flat foot at a stop and feel secure like on my CBR600. I have googled, and couldn't find any lowering links for our bike. Mine's a 2011 model. I'm about 5'8, 165lbs. It's possible the stock suspension needs an adjustment, I just don't know how to do it on this bike. Any info appreciated. I love the bike, but at times it just seems too tall for me. I've never had issues just putting my leg over to get on a seat before, but on this bike sometimes I have to kinda jump on lol.
