Why lowering the motorcycle is a mistake
Motorcycle manufacturers’ (Harley-Davidson, Honda, Yamaha, Indian, etc.) engineers spent countless hours getting the ride height/maneuverability compromise for your motorcycle to perform optimally. Why would you want to change that?
Riders gravitate towards the idea of lowering a motorcycle for many reasons, the main one being the ability to support the motorcycle at a stop with your feet completely flat on the ground. Others lower the motorcycle for looks.
In this video, Ride Like A Pro’s Jerry “Motorman” Palladino and Donna Palladino will focus on how you can actually accomplish getting your feet closer to the ground without lowering the motorcycle. Enjoy!
