Boots that make you taller
I am in the market for a set of boots. Im 5' 6" with a 28 inch inseam. That makes it a bit hard for me to get my feet flat on different bikes. My 00 6R is not lowered but I did have some foam removed from the front seat to get me a bit closer to the ground.
The seat height on the 6R is 32.1.
I am really enamored with the 04 R1 but its seat height is 32.5 inches. Anyway it occured to me that since I tend to ride in sneakers (yes thats not safe) maybe I should get a set of boots.
Maybe those boots would be a bit taller than my sneakers (no im not looking for elevator shoes).
I can see how this thread can turn into an abuse to us short people, but inbetween jokes, can someone recommend a set of boots that wont look like im an astronaught, will fit under jeans, and also maybe give me a little bit of a lift.
The 03 R1 (seat height 32.1) fits me pretty well & if I had a set of boots that gave me an extra inch, it would be no problem at all.
The 04 R1 is so damm sweet & when a dealer gets one in stock, I will get a chance to sit on it. At the moment though, my mind is set on an 04.
Help a shorty find a set of boots so I can fit on an R1
