I have the Corbin seat which is wider than stock, so it spreads my legs out even farther than the stock does and I barely had the toes on the ground with that. I must have short legs if people my height can flat foot.

Funny story is that a guy on a cruiser/harley (something or other) almost stopped traffic to tell me he couldn't believe how high I sat on the bike. Looking in his mirror, he thought i was standing up, then when I pulled up behind him he did a double take. His head was at least a foot and half below mine.

My eye level is even with SUVs sitting in traffic. I should measure the seat height and compare it, but the bike seems really high to everyone as well.
