Greg, I mentioned that you can lower the bike, it is relatively easy to do, I lowered mine 1/2” front and rear and will say that it’s going to take a lot to scrape anything. I narrowed my chicken strip’s up a bunch this past weekend and never touched anything down, and I keep my “A” model set to the plush side of things.
Lowering it for me gave me the ability to flat foot the bike and also the ability to better manage the top heaviness in about any situation but as Red above said many run them off the balls of their feet w/o any issues. Several here are fairly short (ferret comes to mind) and put a lot more miles than most, no problems.
I will add That you should feel free to post ANY questions you have here and know you’l get Honest unbias’d Opinions back but truthfully it boils down to your decision only, if it makes you smile then that’s what you should do,,,,,, screw anyone who has a problem with that.
