aside from physically lowering your seat height,
bear in mind that riding your motorcycle esp regularly
will, change your body.. just like doing any ongoing repetitions
of any movement or positioning regimen, the joints will increase
their range of movement, muscles will become somewhat stronger
and more efficient, including muscles youve never really used
before and connective tissues will also tend to respond to
the above, making movements 'easier' and 'better'..
with minimal regular repetition for eg, a person who cannot bend
their back below horizontal can fairly easily increase their joints
range of movement until placing the face on legs below knees..
in this case, sitting on a motorcycle, there is far less needed
to make just, sitting on it, easier, better, more comfortable
and more efficient including grounding of feet on the floor
and also better interactions between thighs and knees
and motorcycle seat and tank, thus c of g etc..
if you think of spreading out your pelvic/hip joint away to the sides
of the seat and press the joint and thighs outward, sort of like stretching
as in a yawn stretch,, then just that, when included in your start up
routine [but better if you make it a specific movement program]
will progressively change your hip joint range of movement
so as to allow better positioning of legs and thus feet...
think of doing squats, for eg..
think of doing side splits even better..
[ie, from wherever, you, your body, starts from]
these can be done holding onto something for support
such as a kitchen bench or table or railing or whatever,
and for side splits can include lowing onto any raised
surface, such as a pillow or pillows or telephone book[s]
etc, taking your time, not rushing it, lettining it happen
as a function of natural physiological responses..
[even better if you sit on the floor when
watching videos, lovemaking, etc]
this is more a factor for those with shorter legs to
seat height, where even half an inch better reach
and more solid grounding can be significant
and well worthwhile.. an inch is even better..
this is not,, stretching the legs out to make them longer
[altho that can also be applied] rather its extending your
joing range of movement so as to better fit the seat,
in the way a triangle wouldnt fit on the seat as nicely
as a curved shape would fit,, and extend over]
