Lowering my V
I've got a 2012 Vee. At my age (soon to be 70) I can still get my leg up over the bike to get on and off. However, it's getting harder and harder.
I'm thinking about getting a new shock that will lower the bike and inch and cutting down the kick stand. I don't want to change the cockpit because it's so comfortable. I know I can lower the front and lowering links in the back. I've done that on bikes before, but it changes the suspension. I'd like to keep everything the same, just an inch lower.
I'd like to hear information from any Strommers that have done this.
