    I ride a 2010 R1200RT. I have 30inch inseam. With stock seat and suspension I have to lean the bike to one side to flat foot at a stop and hitch to oneside. I went with Sargent cycle lowered seat, now I am able to flat foot and back up the bike. No need to lean over or hitch to oneside at a stop.

    I chose this method as it was less expensive compared to messing with the suspension.

    Get boots with thicker soles. Some change to the position of the shift-lever and brake lever may be required.

    See if Hyperpro has progressive springs for your bike. They lowered my RT by about 1.
