Thanks for the advice guys
Yes, I was the lady at the Okeechobee locks. We have already lowered front end, but the seat was hideously painful so we had to put a little extra cushioning which took it back up. I sure do agree about the kickstand. It is practically upright on the kickstand as it is now. I'll check out Spencer's to see if they can completely redo seat. Taking off padding just adds another problem. I thought the Japanese were short ... so I wonder why they made this bike so high?
